February 2018

Over 1,800 professionals gathered in Barcelona for CMR 2018, a Joint EuroCMR/SCMR meeting organized by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI), a registered branch of the European Society of Cardiology, and the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR). The meeting was the largest ever collection of CMR professionals ever and represented over 70 countries from around the world.   View this years abstract supplement, award winners, and live videos from the meeting. Session recordings will be available in March.

Save the date for the 22nd Annual Scientific Sessions on February 6 - 9, 2019 in Seattle, Washington!
SCMR is excited to announce a new program for 2018, the "FSCMR" designation The FSCMR recognizes the dedicated SCMR member physician, scientist, or technologist with a strong dedication to the SCMR and the field of CMR. The FSCMR designation recognizes a significant level of involvement, dedication, and accomplishments consistent with the overall mission of the Society.

There are three pathways that lead to FSCMR: Clinical Track, Research Track, and Technologist Track. Review the FSCMR criteria for each track to see if you are eligible. All applicants will be Regular, Associate or Technologist members of SCMR in good standing for the past three (3) consecutive years with a distinguished record of CMR science, education, or clinical practice.

The first deadline for applications is March 1st. Visit the website today to learn more and become one of the first Fellows of the SCMR!

A new paper has been published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance  summarizing CMR research trends and highlights presented at the annual SCMR scientific sessions over the past 20 years. The paper was produced by the SCMR Science Committee, led by Daniel Lee and Michael Markl. View the paper here.

Number 18-03: Lower Extremity Edema: Long Term Complication of Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Retur i n Repair 

A 57 year old woman with a history of sinus venosusatrial septal defect and partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR) repaired in childhood presented to the adult congenital heart disease clinic with junctional rhythm and significant lower extremity swelling. She had three surgeries during childhood for congenital heart disease. She did not have consistent care for her heart disease and her surgical history was not clear at presentation. In addition to her congenital heart disease she had known active hepatitis C infection. A month before presentation, she was evaluated for dizziness with bradycardia. She continued to have intermittent bouts of dizziness without syncope.
