Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance

The Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) is proud to announce that it has joined other prominent medical societies in the Choosing Wisely® campaign which was developed to provide the tools to enable patients and physicians to engage in conversations so they can choose the right test at the right time. Founded in 1994, SCMR is an international professional association of physicians, scientists and technologists working in the field of cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging to improve patient outcomes through excellence in education, training, standards, research and development. SCMR has been an active participant in the development of appropriate use criteria and clinical guidelines whose purpose closely parallels the objectives of the Choosing Wisely campaign. Through the shared experience of its members, SCMR contributes to improving the knowledge of health care providers and the health awareness of patients around the world, leading to more effective health services delivery.
