ASKLEPIOS Course on Cardiac Imaging

October 17-19, 2018; Graz/Austria
Course informationThis course is mainly aimed at residents in their late years of training as well as board-certified radiologists interested in updating their knowledge on cardiac radiology. Topics from essential basic information on cardiac CT and MRI technique as well as imaging protocols across clinical scenarios and symptoms to advanced applications such as functional assessment and cardiac MRI flow imaging will be addressed. There will be a focus on cardiac CT and MRI case presentations as well as live sessions. Internationally renowned European experts guarantee for a high-quality teaching programme.

Learning objectives
  • to consolidate knowledge on technical aspects of cardiac CT and MR imaging
  • to learn about different approaches of cardiac CT and MR imaging depending on clinical symptoms
