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.”
