Event Overview
Welcome message:

American College of Radiology (ACR) Coronary CT Angiography Course is organized by American College of Radiology (ACR) and would be held during Dec 07 - 09, 2018 at American College of Radiology, Reston, Virginia, United States of America.


This CME conference has been approved with a maximum of 33.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and 25 SAM Credits.


Course Overview: 

Advanced imaging tools for cardiac CT imaging are developing rapidly. This course is designed to enhance your clinical practice skills by providing intense training in interpreting coronary CTA examinations under the supervision of expert faculty. The course also covers technical considerations for obtaining optimal examinations for interpretation, using scanner simulation technology.


Program Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to :

• Identify normal cardiac anatomy, including coronary arteries, coronary veins, cardiac chambers, valves and great vessels, as well as identify and describe the clinical importance of variant anatomy

• Describe basic technical aspects of coronary CT, including prospective versus retrospective gating, single-cycle versus multicycle reconstruction, temporal resolution, spatial resolution, scan parameters and contrast-injection techniques

• Determine appropriate technique for administering beta blockers and nitroglycerin, with knowledge of absolute and relative contraindications

• Identify and describe how to improve examinations with artifacts, such as cardiac arrhythmias, ECG misregistration and poor breath hold

• Describe the use of different post-processing techniques based on the appropriate clinical indication, including axial source images, multiplanar reconstructions, maximum intensity projections and volume-rendered images.
