Drs. Bluemke and François Address International Conference

Posted on October 2018

David Bluemke, MD, PhD, and Christopher François, MD, recently made presentations to an international conference in Mexico City – without leaving Madison. Both doctors spoke on cardiac MRI “virtually” to a Mexico City audience attending a multi-modality cardiac imaging conference. This was done as part of an international outreach effort supported by the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) and the Society for Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) in collaboration with colleagues at several other institutions in the US and overseas.

“Apparently the session was very well-attended and well-received,” Dr. François said. We anticipate we will be repeating this type of interaction through future international outreach efforts.”

Dr. Bluemke added, “It should be mentioned that Chris really showed everyone how to do this by lecturing in Spanish!”
