Who Should Attend
Advantages of Attending the Workshop
Fifty live cases, plus bonus cases, with catheter angiography correlation and case histories, allowing eligibility for level-certification by the ACR or AHA/ACC and for sitting for the CBCCT board exam.
- Users can choose from five different workstations (GE, Philips, Siemens, Vital, TeraRecon) in order to mimic their "home" environment.
- Users work at their own pace, going through the cases to draw their own conclusions.
- Course faculty start at square zero in explaining the case. No question goes unanswered.
- Cardiologists will be introduced to all the radiology-based information they need. Radiologists will be introduced to all the cardiology-based information they need. Course faculty includes both cardiologists and radiologists.
- World-class faculty. Dr. Cury alone has interpreted over 10,000 coronary CT angiograms.
- High faculty-to-student ratio. We will be able to teach at your side, whether it is for a question about the case or about the workstation.
- Satisfies Level I guidelines.
- This Level 1 course will prepare you for Board Certification and you will accumulate 50 hands-on supervised cases, which are able to count towards Level II Certification.
For those starting out in practice or for those already in practice, this course will provide that
much-needed edge to help you quickly master the difficulties in interpreting coronary CT angiography.
