JCMR Journal Club is an expert online discussion with JCMR editors and authors - and you! JCMR editors pick recently published articles and discuss outcomes with the authors.

The forthcoming JCMR Journal Club will take place on
October 13, 2021 at 10am CDT. Dr. Raymond Kwong will lead the discussion with the presenting author.

Please follow the link to the online registration.

Dr. Kwong will be joined by Dr. Håkan Arheden to discuss their soon-to-be published article, “Pulmonary blood volume measured by cardiovascular magnetic resonance – influence of pulmonary transit time methods and left atrial volume.”

Featured article: Identifying lung water quantification using cardiovascular magnetic resonance

Pulmonary edema is a central feature of heart failure found in >50% of patients with acute decompensated or ambulatory disease. However, there are no quantitative tests currently available in clinical practice. In this study, Thompson et al. developed a simple magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) approach for lung water quantification, to correlate MRI derived lung water with intra-cardiac pressures and to determine its prognostic significance.

Aims and scope

Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (JCMR) publishes high-quality articles on all aspects of basic, translational and clinical research on the design, development, manufacture, and evaluation of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) methods applied to the cardiovascular system. Topical areas include, but are not limited to:

  • New applications of magnetic resonance to improve the diagnostic strategies, risk stratification, characterization and management of diseases affecting the cardiovascular system.
  • New methods to enhance or accelerate image acquisition and data analysis.
  • Results of multicenter, or larger single-center studies that provide insight into the utility of CMR.
  • Basic biological perceptions derived by CMR methods.

Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance is the official publication of the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR).

The mission of SCMR is to improve cardiovascular health by advancing the field of CMR through education, advocacy, networking, research and clinical excellence. The long term vision is that the expanded recognition and utilization of CMR will improve cardiovascular health and outcomes within the next 5 years.
