This statement of the German Cardiac Society (DGK) focusses on required cardiological competence levels in cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) and their impact on clinical management including diagnostics, procedural planning and treatment of patients in cardiology. There is plenty of both basic technical and clinical innovation based on research by German and European cardiologists with high clinical impact that have been included in national, European and international guidelines. This statement provides guidance on safe and competent performance of CMR examinations including the various applications. It also defines competence levels, which enable a high-quality execution of the examination and utilization of the derived information in the clinical arena.
