Christian Medical College Hosts the Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging Conference

A two-day national conference on 'Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging' (CMRI) under the aegis of the Indian Association of Cardiac Imaging is being hosted by the department of radiologists at the Christian Medical college.

According to the founder of the association and the program organizer, Dr Elizabeth Joseph, this is the fifth annual conference of the association, endorsed by USA-based Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR), and is being hosted by CMC for the first time.


This conference will cover both basic and advanced cardiac MRI with several prominent national as well as international speakers on the subject, she added.

According to the head of the department Dr Shyamsundar, the deteriorating condition of the heart in many individuals necessitates quick diagnosis. While electrocardiography, catheter angiography give basic information on the condition of the heart, cardiac MRI technology is needed for treating complex cardiac illnesses.

MRI is relatively safe, non-invasive and free from radiation hazard. The aim of the conference would be to create awareness, dispel fears and promote imaging modalities of heart diagnosis, he added.

The two-day meet will deal with stress-imaging, viability, cardiomyopathy, coronary Magnetic Resonance Angiography. Out of the 20 speakers scheduled to speak, three are from overseas, Dr. Matthias G. Freidrich from University of Montreal, Canada, Dr. Ron Jacob and Dr. Yuchi Han from the USA of the SCMR.
