Cardiac imaging is pivotal for assessing cardiac function as well as metabolism. It encloses ultrasound (UL), computer tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MR), positron emission tomography (PET) and invasive imaging methods. The purpose of the course is to prepare the student to, under the guidance of a senior researcher, plan and present a research project focused on a cardiac imaging. The students will through presentations and journal-clubs gain knowledge on the most commonly used cardiac imaging modalities. Furthermore, great emphasis will be given to the understanding of how clinical studies are designed and performed including strengths and weaknesses of the various study designs.
The students will learn to develop and present a scientific synopsis through a project-orientated learning approach. In the process, academic discussions and peer feedback is prioritized. The course aims to strengthen the student's scientific competencies, as well as stimulating a potential interest in cardiology research.
