CMR Stress Testing and Ischemic Heart Disease

March 02th 2017 from 1pm - March  03th 2017 to 6pm

November 16th 2017 from 1pm - November 17th 2017 to 6pm


This workshop offers dedicated, state-of-the-art training in CMR stress testing and ischemic heart disease. Practical aspects are at the core of both lectures and hands-on training sessions which include live clinical cases at the scanner and extensive case reviews on dedicated workstations.
