About this event

  • Date and time Mon 5 Jul 2021 from 4:00pm to 5:30pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Cardiology

This is an opportunity for delegates to learn how to image patients with adult congenital heart disease and heart disease in pregnancy. Join leaders in their fields on this webinar as they present four cases to allow participants to explore imaging in these patients in-depth. 

During this webinar you will:

  • Understand how the various imaging modalities can be used to help in the investigation of congenital heart disease 
  • Learn how the various imaging modalities can be used to help in the investigation of cardiac disease in pregnancy 
  • Understand some of the nuanced differences between imaging adult-acquired cardiac disease and congenital heart disease  

A CPD certificate with CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.

Professor Raad Mohiaddin

Professor, Cardiovascular Imaging Royal Brompton Hospital and NHLI, Imperial College London

Speaker's biography

Professor Mohiaddin’s main clinical and research interest over the last 30 years has been developing and applying contemporary cross-sectional imaging techniques- particularly MRI in cardiology. His concern has been to make the best possible use of MRI's functional and anatomical information to understand congenital and acquired cardiovascular diseases and guide the diagnosis and management of patients.
