  • Explain strategies for standardizing thoracic aorta measurements
  • Rank the sequences in a cardiac MRI exam in order of the clinical utility for commonly encountered indications – namely viability, assessment of arrhythmias, and myocarditis
  • Describe imaging techniques and modifications to optimize cardiac MRI imaging in patients with poor breath-holding or arrhythmias
  • Describe technical challenges of fetal MRI
  • Describe indications for fetal MRI with emphasis on cardiac and thoracic indications, including heterotaxy, ectopia cordis, and congenital diaphragmatic hernia
