Expert users collaborate to develop cardiac MR protocol

Clinical News
MRI NetForum Team Philips Healthcare • Netherlands

Comprehensive cardiac examination in 30 minutes

A close collaboration between eight prominent cardiac imaging centers worldwide has resulted in an ExamCard for 30-minute MR examination of cardiac function and fibrosis, vouched for by a group of key cardiac MR users. The ExamCard was developed in 1.5T and 3.0T versions for Ingenia and Achieva dStream systems.

Cross-fertilization in CMR expert panel

This project started in 2011 during the 12th Philips Cardiac MR Network Meeting in Brussels. Attendees recognized that speed and standardization are critical for the acceptation and growth of clinical cardiac MR. The assembly voted that the development of a fast Function and Fibrosis ExamCard, based on the best experiences of expert panel members, would be the best strategy to drive the increase of Cardiac MR use.

 A cardiac MR expert panel was formed. Then, collaboration and cross-fertilization via meetings, emails, phone conversations, ExamCard exchange, patient studies and site visits led to the development of ExamCards for both 1.5T and 3.0T. These two ExamCards, combining experiences and best practices of eight leading institutes in the field of cardiac MR, can support other users of cardiac MR and may help new users to take the CMR threshold.

Would you like to see or try the Cardiac Function and Fibrosis ExamCard?

The ExamCard, along with explanations and instructions, will soon be available for viewing and download on NetForum. Don’t miss the opportunity to download the ExamCard and try it on your own scanner.

- German Heart Center Berlin (Germany)
- ETH Zürich (Switzerland)
- Leiden University Medical Center (Netherlands)
- University Medical Center Utrecht (Netherlands)
