Coronary CT Angiography Course is organized by American College of Radiology (ACR) and will be held from Feb 22 - 24, 2021 at American College of Radiology, Reston, Virginia, United States of America.
Earn up to 33.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 25 SAM Credits
Designation Statement: The American College of Radiology designates this live activity for a maximum of 33.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Qualified on 12/20/2018, this activity meets the American Board of Radiology’s criteria for a self-assessment (SAM) activity and is designated for up to 25 SAM Credits toward the ABR Maintenance of Certification program.
This three-day course led by Joe Hsu, MD, Amar Shah, MD, and Jean Jeudy, MD, is designed to optimize your clinical practice skills by providing intense training in interpreting coronary CTA examinations under the supervision of expert faculty. Participants use workstations with the same vendor software as in their own practice and have access to nearly 100 cases. Most cases include clinical scenarios as well as coronary catheter angiography correlation. The course also covers technical considerations for obtaining optimal examinations for interpretation.
Program and Learning 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
