The Society of Magnetic Resonance Angiography SMRA (http://society4mra.org ) was founded in 1989 and is the pre-eminent conference for MR vascular research and clinical applications. Distinguished MRA researchers and clinicians from all over the world attend this annual event to present their most current research results and exchange scientific knowledge. Many of the fundamental developments in cardiac MRI have actually come through members of this group. Of particular interest to those involved with cardiac MRI there are strong sessions as noted on the attached programme with scientific sessions on Coronary MRA, Cardiac MRI, Quantitative Flow & Cardiothoracic MRA as well as applications of AI, CS etc. There are also highly relevant plenary talks such as –
Keynote on Self-Gated Cardiac MRI by Matthias Stuber, current President of SCMR
Keynote on PET MRI in cardiovascular Disease by Prof David Newby
Prior to the conference proper there is an educational workshop with teaching on fundamental techniques form the experts that developed them as per the flyer.
Note that the registration includes the excellent evening social program – http://society4mra.org/annual-meeting/social-events/
