The international CMR community will gather in Barcelona for CMR 2018, a joint EuroCMR*/SCMR meeting organised by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI), a registered branch of the European Society of Cardiology, and the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR).

CMR 2018 will focus on the theme of “Improving Clinical Value by Technical Advances”, emphasising the common goal of improving clinical outcomes in cardiovascular disease through innovation in basic MR development and medical engineering.

By providing a space where experts from all over the world with different experience and background share knowledge, the meeting offers more than 35 hours of presentations and cutting-edge information both on a novice and advanced level.

Particular care is given to guarantee time for discussions, specialised topics, case presentations, speed mentoring and focused pre-conferences as well as sessions for non-physicians and basic scientists.
Attendees new to CMR will have the opportunity of pursuing a Level 1 Certification Track and learn the basic foundation required for a research or clinical career in the field.

The Live Case Session of this year will highlight the potential of CMR guided arrhythmia ablation, a particularly relevant and timely topic in the city of Barcelona.

In addition to the main meeting, a co-hosted ISMRM workshop will focus on Ischemia Imaging, from pathophysiological models, to advancements in imaging sequences and clinical applications.

Top leaders in the field of cardiology and radiology will provide the important context for this exciting event.

Let CMR 2018 expose you to state-of-the-art technological advances and innovative clinical imaging trials while generating new ideas to allow CMR to flourish worldwide!
