Starting in CMR?

Congratulations for considering CMR. It is a fantastic and rewarding field. But starting out can be daunting. CMR can be perceived as esoteric and complex. A major goal of SCMR assist and encouarge people starting out in CMR. We would like you to consider joining the community that is SCMR which you can do here

In the meantime, here are some pointers.

"Case of the week"

 Available for members and non-members. This library of cases will be building up to a useful repository of interesting, useful and sometimes beautiful cases demonstrating CMR as a clinical and research technique and acting a reference library. As of September 2010, there are 93 cases online.
The archive is here 

"How I do"

Members only. An extensive series of up-to-date presentations with embedded movies.
Here are some free ones
How I do CMR safely
How I do a volume study
