Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Familiarity with the cardiovascular applications and interpretations of magnetic resonance images is essential to the training of a cardiovascular fellow. This imaging modality has many existing uses and considerable potential in noninvasive diagnosis. The fellow should supplement this experience with exposure to cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) studies throughout the clinical training program. Those who wish to interpret CMR studies or who desire advanced training must have additional training.
