CMR 4.0: Autonomous and Efficient Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging February 12-13, 2020
The nascent birth of CMR in the 1980’s marked the early technologies capable of imaging the beating human heart (CMR 1.0). In the 1990’s, CMR advanced into a gold standard imaging modality for the assessment of cardiac function (CMR 2.0). CMR in the 2000’s and 2010’s, with the advances of tissue characterization, became a primary end point of clinical trials (CMR 3.0). As we reach 2020, living the 4th industrial revolution of automation and big data, with unprecedented computational power, novel technologies are propelling the field into a new age of autonomous and efficient CMR imaging, a new era of CMR 4.0. Novel approaches for autonomous and efficient CMR scanning, including data quantitation, have the potential to afford an unprecedented cost effective clinical workflow allowing CMR to be accessible worldwide. New revolution in hardware, software and with the irruption of artificial intelligence playing a quickly expanding role in cardiac imaging promise an exceptionally fast comprehensive assessment of cardiac anatomy, function and flow. All of this, immerse in the world of big data set from multicontrast, muliparametric, and multi-modality CMR images, will change the way how we assimilate this multidimensional information providing a distinctive patient centered care.
This workshop will review and discuss major developments in efficient CMR hardware, software, sequence development, and protocols. Possible topics of the sessions (subject to changes) could be:
Efficient and effective CMR
Autonomous scanning and quantification
Rapid imaging of structure, function, and flow
Rapid multiparametric mapping
Efficient multidimensional, multi-contrast, and multi-modality CMR
Efficient CMR hardware
AI and Big data in CMR
