Event Overview
Welcome message:

Cardiovascular CT Imaging: Intensive Level II Training Course and Introduction to 3D Vascular Angiography & Stress Perfusion CT is organized by Cardiovascular Associates, Ltd. and would be held during Sep 11 - 15, 2017 at Sentara Heart Hospital Cardiac Diagnostic Unit And Advanced Imaging Center, Norfolk, Virginia, United States of America. 


The target audience for this medical event are Cardiovascular Disease Specialists, Radiologists, Fellows-in-training, Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgeons. This CME conference has been approved with a maximum of 58.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. 


Objectives

After the activity, participants will be able to:

• Operate a 3–dimensional workstation to extract pertinent information from a thoracic volume of interest (VOI), then analyze and interpret the cardiovascular findings systematically, using the VRT–MIP–MPR method, to construct a complete and accurate Cardiovascular CT Report

• Judge the quality of Cardiovascular CT studies and its relationship to cardiac CT technical factors including the advantages and disadvantages of various types of cardiovascular CT scanners: 32 slice, 64 slice, 256 slice, dual source CT, and PET–CT hybrid imaging

• Formulate an acquisition protocol for CT contrast administration, recognizing the kinetics of triphasic injection and caveats in special patient populations such as those with valvular disease, a history of adverse reactions to contrast media, intra–cardiac shunts, and high BMI

• Cite CT radiation dose reduction strategies, radiation risk measures, and published radiation dose values in comparison to other cardiac modalities, and manipulate CT scan collimation, temporal resolution, and the three fields–of–view for cardiac patients to minimize risks to the patient

• Characterize plaque density and vulnerability for individual lesions, difference between abnormal findings and image artifact, and caveats of stenosis estimation including the effect of window and level view settings

• Evaluate regional contractility, calculated estimation of ejection fraction, myocardial resting perfusion, native and mechanical valves, and pericardial disease

• Evaluate typical and complex tertiary referral studies including acute aortic syndromes, pulmonary embolism, simple congenital heart disease, post–aortic surgery studies, pre and post electrophysiologic intervention, and cardiac masses, etc. (see table of typical and tertiary cases presented)

• Interpret extracardiac thoracic structures such as pleural effusions, lung nodules, lymphadenopathy, infiltrates and cite the Fleischner Society guidelines for Management of Small Pulmonary Nodules Detected on CT Scans
