Goethe CVI® Examcards
The Goethe CVI® Examcards can be downloaded and imported onto Siemens scanners. For cardiac MRI, the minimum requirement is the scanner software Version VE11. We currently support several types of Siemens scanners (Aera, Skyra, AvantoFit), with and without Cardiac Dot Engine (the Non-Dot version). For mapping sequences to run, Siemens MyoMap software must also be in place. A sharing agreement for use of the Goethe CVI® Examcards and a licence fee apply to cover support with the installation and ongoing quality assurance. Disclaimer: the appropriate use of the Goethe CVI® examcard is requires a completed process of Goethe CVI® Affiliation.
Goethe CVI® Affiliation
An appropriate use of the Goethe CVI® approaches is fostered through Goethe CVI® Affiliation, consisting of personalised induction training and long-term remote supervised experience. The aim of the Goethe CVI® Affiliation is to achieve the clinical competency in CMR, defined by a minimum equivalent of EuroCMR level II Accreditation or SCCT level II.The pathway to complete Goethe CVI® Affiliation will be defined individually, in line with the previous experience. Induction training can be undertaken by a hospitation at our institution arranged either directly with us or as a a part of Siemens Clinical Observership.
