Workshop: Cardiac Mapping                         **booking**

June 29th 2017 from 1pm - June 30th 2017 to 6pm

November 23th 2017 from 1pm - November 24th 2017 to 6pm


This workshop offers dedicated training on the principles and applications for quantitative tissue characterization using T1, T2, and T2* mapping techniques.

The course focuses on advantages and limitations of novel pulse sequences for parametric mapping and their clinical applications for assessing fibrotic, inflammatory and infiltrative cardiomyopathies, myocardial edema and iron overload.
