This is the first dedicated CMR symposium ever organized in Singapore, and we would like to extend a warm invitation to you to attend this exciting event. For this inaugural symposium, we will be focusing on coronary heart disease (CHD). CHD is of course the main killer in many countries and is increasing in prevalence in epidemic proportions. About 80% of most cardiology practice involves management of CHD and its complications. Although CMR is still a relatively new technology in Southeast Asia, it is rapidly gaining importance as the ideal noninvasive tool for the comprehensive evaluation of the patient with CHD.

We have lined up an impressive programme for you. At this symposium, you will learn from experts in the CMR field how CMR can be employed in the comprehensive assessment of the patient with CHD. Highlights of this symposium include:

- Didactic lectures by expert CMR practitioners
- Live scanning of real patients with CHD
- CMR reporting with the experts
- Exhibition by major MRI vendors

So do join us in November for an educational journey in cardiovascular magnetic resonance. See you in Singapore!


The objectives of this course are:

- To learn what cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) is all about and what it can offer to the clinician
- To learn how to comprehensively evaluate a patient with coronary heart disease using CMR
- To learn tips and tricks about image optimization and acquisition
- To learn to issue a comprehensive and clinically relevant CMR report
- To establish camaraderie and friendship among CMR practitioners in this region
- To promote the use of CMR in Southeast Asia

Who should attend?
- Cardiologists, Cardiovascular Physicians and Surgeons
- Radiologists
- Radiographers, Radiology and Cardiology Technologists
