CMR Teaching Courses and Workshops

 

 

Courses We Offer

We are an internationally recognised CMR training facility based in South Australia.

We have been conducting annual SCMR accredited Level I & II CMR teaching courses and workshops since 2009 in Australia, North Asia and South East Asia.

 

 

Level 2 CMR Teaching Course and Workshop

The Level 2 Cardiac MRI teaching course and workshop is directed at Cardiologists, Radiologists and Nuclear Medicine Physicians, who wish to achieve Level 2 SCMR accreditation. The content has been specifically designed to satisfy 50% of the Level 2 requirements, including 25 live CMR cases and an additional 50 CMR cases manipulated on workstations with supervision by teaching faculty.

 

The course covers a wide variety of clinical material ranging from myocardial viability, perfusion, cardiomyopathy imaging, as well as valvular heart disease, pericardial disease and congenital heart disease. The course is clinically relevant and makes comparison with other imaging modalities including coronary angiography and echocardiography.


We have been conducting Level 2 CMR teaching workshops since 2011. The five-day workshop is held in Adelaide, South Australia, once a year usually in the month of May.

Level 1 CMR Teaching Course

This 2-day Level 1 Cardiac MRI Teaching Course is designed to enhance clinical practice skills by providing intense training in interpreting cardiac MRI examinations under the supervision of teaching faculty, Lectures will cover basic MRI physics, MRI safety as well as CMR scanning protocols for common cardiac conditions. Mentored review sessions allow course attendees to manipulate approximately 50 teaching cases on notebook workstations and highlight imaging guidance on management, covering aspects of viability, perfusion, cardiomyopathy, as well as valvular heart disease and congenital heart disease.

 

Attendees will be awarded a Certificate of Proficiency that includes the mentored number of cases reviewed, for use in credentialing which can contribute to the case requirements of clinical competence in CMR specified by the ACFC/AHA/SCMR. Together with evidence of 1 month clinical exposure of CMR, attendees can submit application to SCMR for Level 1 accreditation.
