Why attend ?

Over the past 13 years Medis has been active in the R&D and commercialization of our state-of-the-art analytical software packages QMass MR & QFlow, plus new Apps such as QMap and QStrain, for the quantitative analysis of cardiovascular MR data sets. It has been our experience that dedicated two-day’s courses with hands-on training by the senior researchers and developers of these software packages is very helpful for new users, as well as for established users who need a refresher.

Who should attend ?

Cardiologists, radiologists, fellows, technicians and physicists who currently are, or will be working with the QMass MR and QFlow analytical software packages and need to familiarize themselves with all the ins and outs of these systems, with the new Apps and with the clinical applications.
