Rome (IT), 13-14 June 2019

General Information

GENERAL INFORMATION:
This course focuses on teaching of clinical applications of CT and MR imaging of the heart and vascular system. Issues relevant to daily clinical practice will be discussed in plenary sessions, as well as more advanced topics and future outlooks. Workshops will be given to practice image processing tools for CT and MRI.
