Physics Just the Basics Series #05 - Movies of the beating heart with CINE-MRI


This presentation will introduce the use of gradient echoes in tandem with ECG triggering in order to obtain CINE movies of the beating heart, as most commonly applied in the clinics. The concepts of prospective and retrospective triggering as well as the concept of arrhythmia rejection will be presented. At the end of this module the audience should understand CINE image formation, types of triggering and arrhythmia rejection.

In response to feedback provided by the global CMR community, the SCMR Education Committee is proud to announce a pilot MRI physics webinar series,  SCMR WEBINAR SERIES: PHYSICS JUST THE BASICS. Radiology trainees, CMR imaging trainees, those new to CMR, MRI technologists, and anyone else who has an interest in learning the simple fundamental concepts of how MRI works should participate in the webinar.  

The basic format of the webinar will consististed of a didactic lecture for 30-45”, followed by a question and answer period for the remainder of the hour.  The difficulty level of the physics presented will be targeted toward clinicians.
