"The value of CMR and MDCT in the diagnosis of dilated cardiomyopathy"
Speaker: Alexis Jacquier (Paris, France)

• to learn about the differences between ischemic cardiomyopathies (ICM) and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM)
• to discuss the differential diagnosis of DCM
• to become familiar with diagnostic algorithm do diagnose DCM and to differentiate from ICM
• to learn about the value of CMR for resynchronization therapy

"Non ischemic cardiomyopathies with MR Imaging"
Speaker: Olivier Vignaux (Paris, France)
Learning objectives:
• to differentiate with MR imaging non ischemic cardiomyopathies from ischemic cardiomyopathies
• to know the patterns and prognostic value of MR delayed enhancement in non ischemic cardiomyopathies
• to learn specific MR features of some non ischemic cardiomyopathies such as amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, sclerodermia, haemochromatosis or right ventricular dysplasia
