Highlighted sessions and features of the 22nd Annual Scientific Sessions include:

  • National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) sponsored inaugural joint session highlighting ground breaking cardiac magnetic resonance research
  • Vanguard Session focusing on international cardiac magnetic resonance experience at high volume centers
  • SCMR/International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) Co-Provided Workshop on the Emerging Role of Machine Learning in Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • CMR Certification Examination Preparatory Course, new to the Scientific Sessions program this year

The Scientific Sessions are attended by over 1,300 physicians, scientists, technologists and others who work in the fields of cardiology and radiology. The full program is available on the SCMR Scientific Sessions site.
