SCMR 22nd Annual Scientific Sessions
Software tools for image analysis play an important role in CMR and make the difference in every-day workflow for CMR physicians. SCMR would like to establish new avenues of interaction between its members and software vendors to enhance visibility of existing products and facilitate feedback from users. In this plenary face-off session, software vendors will be given the opportunity to present the use of their software in a live setting. Vendors will be provided with real-world CMR image data 4 weeks before the meeting. At the session, a representative of the company will be asked to analyze these data within 10 minutes live from a vendor’s workstation connected to large screens in one of the meeting’s ballrooms. During the session, two senior SCMR figures will moderate the presentations and will discuss with the presenters the approach of their software to different analysis tasks. Moderators will aim to create a friendly atmosphere that allows for asking the questions that are of interest to the users while giving the vendors' representatives the opportunity to demonstrate and explain the advantages of their products.
