SCMR Mid-Year Meeting: Myocardial Perfusion CMR


This program will be heavily focused on how to performance and interpretation of stress CMR using a case-based learning approach along with ample opportunities to directly interpret stress CMR images on a workstation. This program is designed to help participants master how to perform stress CMR.

Physician Practice Gap:

Currently there is a lack of educational resources to prepare physicians on how to perform and interpret stress CMR. Utilizing CMR one will get more definitive, relevant, and actionable answers because a CMR exam provides comprehensive information and has superior diagnostic and prognostic power, without the need for radiation.

Needs that Underlie the Gap

There is a need to provide educational support to physicians to overcome the barrier of inadequate knowledge and skills to perform stress CMR.

DESIGNED to Change/Outcome: Following this activity, learners will develop competence by increasing their knowledge through a combination of hands-on learning, didactic lectures, panel discussions, case-based activities, and demonstration of equipment/techniques.


Day 1:

  • Stress CMR 101: Including basics of interpretation, how to start a lab / program, etc.

  • Stress CMR 201: Interpreting Stress MR with complex CAD

  • Cases, cases, and more cases with audience participation

Day 2:

  • All about Quantitation techniques: physics, sequences, and cutting edge post-processing

  • The Polar Plot thickens with lots of cases, cases and more cases of myocardial blood flow

  • Novel populations, situations, and stress techniques

  • Working the work stations, opportunities to analyze stress CMR cases with multiple vendors

  • All along, meet, network and learn from the International Stars of CMR from this next-level conference!


  • In-depth presentations & discussions of stress CMR techniques, including program building, image acquisition, image interpretation, and quantitative perfusion

  • Cases, cases, and more stress CMR cases presented by centers from around the world

  • Hands-on sessions where you will interpret cases on a dedicated workstation

  • World-renowned speakers

  • To obtain the skills and knowledge needed to start a stress CMR program at your imaging center

  • To help improve your stress CMR skills
