Our department runs an active clinical cardiovascular magnetic resonance service with Friday afternoons reserved for the scanning of acute/ inpatient and outpatient cases. A weekly multidisciplinary meeting is held on Tuesdays from 4 pm onwards for the review of cases, led by Dr Sulaiman Moosa (Radiology) and Professor Ntobeko Ntusi (Cardiology), with shared attendance by radiographers, registrars and radiologists from both the public and private sector.

The case load consists of a broad range of pathologies including the spectrum of ischemic heart disease, adult congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies and inflammatory diseases of the heart, with shared expertise ensuring that high quality reports are provided to guide further clinical management.

Furthermore, the Cape University Body Imaging Centre (CUBIC) runs an active cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging research program with multiple ongoing studies seeking to consolidate and expand the utility of CMR in the management of patients with cardiovascular disease.
