Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance 2019 Case of the Week series

J Cardiovasc Magn Reson. 2021 Apr 1;23(1):44. doi: 10.1186/s12968-020-00671-7.


The Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) is an international society focused on the research, education, and clinical application of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). The SCMR web site ( ) hosts a case series designed to present case reports demonstrating the unique attributes of CMR in the diagnosis or management of cardiovascular disease. Each clinical presentation is followed by a brief discussion of the disease and unique role of CMR in disease diagnosis or management guidance. By nature, some of these are somewhat esoteric, but all are instructive. In this publication, we provide a digital archive of the 2019 Case of the Week series as a means of further enhancing the education of those interested in CMR and as a means of more readily identifying these cases using a PubMed or similar search engine.

Keywords: Cardiac tumor; Cardiomyopathy; Eosinophilic granulomatosis; MRI.
