The first Radiology Academy Forum

The focus in 2016 was to deliver an informative one-day educational event that would provide guidance for those starting to perform cardiac MRI in clinical practice. The Steering Committee developed an innovative and compelling agenda, consisting of science, clinical cases and physics, and covering a range of topics from how to commission a cardiac MRI service through to best practice protocols for perfusion and device imaging.


The Forum on Cardiac MRI took place on 11 November 2016 in Birmingham. Enthusiastic attendees gathered to interact with, and learn from, a faculty of cardiac MRI experts. The mix of plenary and workshop sessions were well received, with excellent feedback from the audience and faculty alike.

Commitment to cardiac MRI education continues

The Radiology Academy are committed to continued support for those performing cardiac MRI, and have developed three 1-hour ‘lunch and learn’ agendas, based on topics from the Forum on cardiac MRI. These smaller meetings will cover the topics of cardiac perfusion imaging, the clinical utility of cardiac MRI, and angiography and viability imaging.

The Bayer UK key account managers and clinical application specialists will be leading the roll-out of these meetings around the country. If you would like to organise an event in your region, please contact
