Event Overview
Welcome message:

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

What Your Colleagues Are Saying

The faculty are really fantastic - excellent teachers, very friendly and helpful. I appreciate the vendor representatives - they are excellent instructors.


Excellent. I have done this course twice - once in my final year of residency (prior to having any substantial CTA experience) and now after more than a year of fellowship (with about 200 clinical cases) - and both experiences were very worthwhile. The class is great for both the novice and more experienced user - both can ask questions pertinent to their level of experience and see really good cases.


I have never been to an activity that is so directly applicable to my practice. I will be able to apply new techniques and refined expertise immediately.
