The proposed CME activity is a comprehensive review article on T2 mapping. The review details both the physics based aspects of T2 mapping as well as current clinical applications with supporting evidence.
T2 mapping is a high impact tool in cardiac magnetic resonance to identify myocardial edema / inflammation. However, it is significantly underused clinically despite the large amount of evidence supporting its use.
Ideally T2 mapping will be utilized broadly clinically to improve diagnostic and prognostic CMR capabilities.
Following this activity, learners will...
1. identify the T2 mapping sequences available to perform T2 mapping.
2. recognize the wide applications of T2 mapping in a variety of clinical diseases.
3. be able to initiate broad use of T2 mapping in their clinical practice to improve diagnostic and prognostic capabilities of CMR.
