CMR Pocket Guide
A complimentary CMR pocket guide has been produced by the ESC’s CMR Working Group and is authored by Bernhard Herzog, John Greenwood and Sven Plein.
The guide aims to provide a day-to-day companion for those new to CMR and for those looking for a quick reference guide in routine practice. The booklet gives an overview of established normal ranges for CMR measurements, common acquisition methods and clinical indications for CMR. For each indication, typical scan protocols, tips and tricks, and a guide for reporting are provided.
The Guide works as an interactive pdf and should also work on iphone, ipad, etc.
