SCMR recommended Protocols


SCMR Recommended Protocols for syngo MR B17

To aid standardization of CMR, the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) released CMR exam protocol recommendations for the most frequent CMR procedures, from MR imaging of myocardial infarct and cardiomyopathies, stress MRI, coronary MRA to valvular disease, congenital heart disease and more. In a collaborational effort of Siemens Medical Solutions and the SCMR we have prepared clinically optimized exam protocols for Siemens 1.5T and 3T MAGNETOM Tim systems in accordance to the SCMR recommendations.

Please use the appropriate protocols optimized for your particular scanner type, number of receiver channels and gradient performance. For ease of use, the protocols are organized by exam modules or common cardiac diseases and sub-organized by the patient's cooperative abilities.

This comprehensive CMR Users Guide for the most frequent CMR indications including illustrations on how to plan the correct orientations. To enable the use in everyday routine, the chapters are closely linked to the EDX protocols provided above.
