This is a three-day hands-on Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance workshop specifically designed to benefit Radiographers, Radiologists and Cardiologists working on, or interested in MRI, both in a clinical and research environment.

The workshop will consist of a series of lectures, followed by practical sessions based on the theory. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with MRI where they can gain a deeper understanding on how to plan, execute and analyse Cardiac MRI scans.

NB: Attendees need to bring their own laptop with mouse for the practical session on the simulator.
