17th Annual Hands-On Course on Pediatric Cardiovascular MRI
October 15-17, 2019
The Society for Pediatric Radiology (SPR) and Nationwide Children’s Hospital are pleased to co-sponsor the 17th SPR Hands-on Cardiac MR Course. The Hands-on course will be held at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, October 15th – 17th, 2019, and is co-sponsored by UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, Oakland, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Lurie Children’s Hospital, Chicago, and Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston.
This is a three-day intensive course with the goals of reviewing the necessary basic knowledge of heart disease in children and illustrating the practical use of MR for morphologic, functional, and hemodynamic evaluation. The course will consist of didactic lectures, free-form discussion sessions, interactive MR scanning, and hands-on post processing sessions. Please refer to the enclosed attachments for details of the program. At the completion of the course, the attendees should feel confident in initiating a cardiovascular MR program at their respective institutions to support the increasing demands for cardiovascular MR imaging in recent years. In addition, through this symposium, the organizers hope to create a communication and support network for radiologists and cardiologists pertaining to issues in the clinical practice of cardiovascular imaging.
All registrants are automatically registered for the “15th Advanced Symposium on Pediatric Cardiovascular Imaging” that will also be held at Nationwide Children’s Hospital on October 18-20th immediately following this Symposium. All the registrants for the 17th Hands-On Course are required to attend the 15th Advanced Symposium without exception. No additional registration fee for the Advanced Symposium is required. Therefore, the time commitment is a total of 6 days from October 15th – 20th, 2019.
15th Annual Advanced Symposium on Pediatric Cardiovascular Imaging
October 18-20, 2019
The Society for Pediatric Radiology and Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, are pleased to co-sponsor the 15th Advanced Symposium in Pediatric Cardiovascular Imaging. Co-sponsored by the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Lurie Children’s Hospital, Chicago, and Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston, the Symposium will be held at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A., October 18th – 20th, 2019.
The 15th Advanced Symposium on Pediatric Cardiovascular Imaging is a two and one half-day course whose aim is to review advanced utilization of imaging of heart diseases in children with an emphasis on MR. The major session topics of this year’s course include: Focus sessions on Decision-making for Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation in children, Imaging of Single Ventricle with MRI, CT and catheterization, Interventional CMR, Imaging of muscular dystrophy, and Value of MR imaging in pediatric heart disease. The program will also contain the popular “Works-in-Progress” session where cardiovascular imaging sections from major pediatric institutions from North America, Europe, and Asia, will present their most recent technical advances and research results.
This year SPR courses will be held in conjunction with the 2019 3DI3 Conference!
For the first time, this year’s SPR Advanced Course will be held in conjunction with the 2019 International Symposium on 3D Imaging for Interventional Catheterization in CHD (3DI3), offering a rare opportunity to bring together advanced non-invasive and invasive imaging under a shared program. Apart from the opportunities for networking and learning, the shared sessions will also delve into standardized approaches to strategic planning, reporting, and nomenclature for common disease pathways in pediatric cardiovascular disease.
The 3DI3 Symposium will be held at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, on October 19-21, 2019. On Oct. 19-20,SPR and 3DI3 will have a combined program. For more information, visit 3DI3.org.
