1.5T Cardiac ExamCards according to the SCMR guidelines

ExamCard
de Kok, Wendy Philips Healthcare Philips Global

The Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) publishes guidelines for cardiac MR, to aid standardization of CMR acquisitions. As CMR evolves, it is anticipated that these will be updated and new modules may be added.

 

This contribution provides ExamCards that are set-up according to the revised SCMR-guidelines as published in JCMR in July 2008. 

 

All ExamCards can be used on the following system types:

  • Intera Power, SW release 12.1 and higher
  • Intera Master, SW release 12.1 and higher
  • Achieva Pulsar, SW release 2.1 and higher
  • Achieva Nova, SW release 2.1 and higher
  • Achieva Nova Dual, SW release 2.1 and higher

 

Required commercial packages:

  • Cardiac Specialist (for all sequences)
  • Coronary Specialist (for some sequences)

 

Please send questions, remark or suggestions for improvement to: wendy.de.kok@philips.com

 

Overview of available ExamCards:

Translating SCMR guidelines into ExamCards

The guidelines provide various modules for cardiac scanning. Each module is translated into an ExamCard. The first section of the guidelines describes the following general techniques, for which ExamCards are provided:

  • Left ventricular structure and function (module 1.2)
  • Right ventricular structure and function (module 1.3)
  • Dynamic (function, non cine) (module 1.5)
  • IR prepared TFE (function, non cine) (module 1.6)

 

The second section of the guidelines describes disease specific protocols. Each related ExamCard provides the complementary sequences that should be scanned in addition to one or more of the general modules. Information on the required modules is available in each ExamCard.

Module 1.1 (stress equipment and safety guidelines) and module 1.4 are not translated into an ExamCard as both modules do not describe scan protocols. Please refer to the SCMR website for the content of these modules 1.1 and 1.4.
