Cardiovascular MRI with CT correlation

Porto (PO), 26-28 May 2021

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. 
The course is aimed at Radiologists, Cardiologists, MR and CT technicians, Residents in radiology and cardiology, and Physicians and Physicists who currently are, or in the future will be working with cardiovascular MRI and CT are given the opportunity to get acquainted with basic as well as advanced applications of MRI and CT in cardiovascular diagnosis.
Those who pass an examination at the end of the course will receive a certificate.
CME-accreditation will be requested.
