Advanced Cardiac Imaging: Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR)

The University of Hong Kong via edX

Overview

GOLD Award Winner of QS Reimagine Education Award 2021 in Life Sciences!

This course is for radiologists, cardiologists, radiographers/ technologists and other health professionals who want to learn more about cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR). Previous experience in CMR is not required.

The learning outcomes are:

  1. Understanding of the basic CMR physics and sequences in order to better understand how to acquire cardiac images and how to assess commonly used sequences (eg. Steady state free precession sequence, phase contrast to measure blood flow, T2* and magnetic resonance angiography).
  2. Understand the safety profile and risks of contrast agents used in CMR.
  3. Ability to analyse CMR images at SCMR level 1 competency such as stress perfusion, late gadolinium enhancement and post-processing for ventricular function.
  4. Attain hands-on experience to analyse real clinical cases from a database of 50 clinical cases, using dedicated CMR software, as well as further supplementation through our web forum.
  5. Basic understanding of future developments in the CMR field such as exercise CMR, artificial intelligence, feature tracking, T1 and T2 mapping.
  6. Provide career advice and thoughts from well-known CMR experts through exclusive interviews.

A MOOC on cardiac computed tomography (CT) is also available on this platform in order to introduce you to this complementary cardiovascular imaging technique.

本课程是与国际心血管磁共振学会(SCMR)合作开发的,适合想要深度了解心血管磁共振成像(CMR)的放射科医师,心内科及心外科医师,放射科技师/工程师和其他医疗健康专业人士。而无需具备CMR经验。

学习目标如下:

  1. 了解基本的CMR物理和序列知识,以便更好地了解如何获取心脏图像以及如何评估常用序列(例如,稳态自由进动序列,相位对比血流测量,T2 *和磁共振血管造影)。
  2. 了解CMR造影剂的安全性和风险。
  3. 具备SCMR 1级CMR图像分析能力,例如负荷灌注,延迟强化和心室功能后处理。
  4. 临床病例数据库中获取50个真实病例,利用专业后处理软件及学习平台提供的资料进行教学操作,获得实践经验。
  5. 对CMR领域未来发展的基本了解,如人工智能、特征追踪,以及T1和T2定量成像。
  6. 通过独家访谈获取知名CMR专家对学生的职业建议和想法。

此平台上还提供心脏计算机断层扫描(CT)的公开课,以全面介绍这两种优势互补的心血管成像技术。

Syllabus

WEEK 1: Sequences, Acquisition, Contrast Agents and Basic Physics

This MOOC will begin with a course on the common cardiac MR sequences, the physics and application behind those sequences. We will also learn how to acquire cardiac MR imaging planes.

WEEK 2: Cardiomyopathies, LGE and T2

In this section, we will teach you how to assess and analyse ventricular function, LGE and T2*. We will also give you an overview of the main common cardiac diseases, such as coronary artery disease and cardiomyopathy.

WEEK 3: Coronary Artery Disease, Aorta, Pericardium and Valves

CMR techniques such as stress perfusion imaging, CMR sequences and methods for assessing aortopathy, pericarditis with or without constriction and valvular disease will be covered in this section.

WEEK 4: Congenital Heart Disease and Paediatric Scanning

This section will cover the role of CMR in congenital heart disease. You will also learn scanning techniques and common indications for babies and children.

WEEK 5: Advanced and Future Developments

In the last section, we will cover exciting advances in cardiac MRI, such as exercise CMR, T1/T2 mapping, artificial intelligence and feature tracking.

Clinical Cases:

You will also have hands-on experience to review clinical cases (eg. stress CMR with x-ray catheter angiography correlation) with tutorial videos every week.

第1周:序列,图像采集,造影剂和基础物理

首先介绍常见心脏MR序列及其物理和基础应用。我们还将学习如何获取心脏MR成像平面。

第2周:心脏疾病,延迟强化和T2*图像分析

在本节中,我们将教您如何评估和分析心室功能,延迟强化和T2 *。我们还将介绍常见的心脏疾病,如冠状动脉疾病和心肌病。

第3周 冠狀動脈疾病,主動脈,心包和瓣膜

本節將介紹CMR技術,例如负荷灌注成像,CMR序列以及評估主動脈病變,有或沒有缩窄性改变的心包炎,以及瓣膜疾病。

第4周:先天性心脏病及儿童CMR扫描

本节将介绍先天性心脏病以及CMR在其中的应用。我们还将学习相关的扫描技术,以及婴儿和儿童的常见适应症。

第5周:前沿和未来发展

在最后一节中,我们将向您介绍CMR的一些令人振奋的进展,例如运动负荷成像,T1/T2 mapping ,人工智能和特征追踪。

临床病例:

您还将有机会通过网络研讨会和网络论坛讨论每周练习的临床病例(例如 负荷灌注CMR并结合相应冠状动脉X线造影结果)。
