Hands-on Advanced Cardiovascular CT Angiogram Course towards Level 2 Cardiac CT is organized by Radicon Institute of Radiology and will be held from Jun 18 - 22, 2022 at Rove Downtown, Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
International faculty of Cardiac Computed Tomography (CT) with cardiology and radiology expertise are present throughout the sessions to educate and conduct supervised case reviews in a five-day intensive course. The course focuses on providing high-quality education and cutting-edge learning methodologies. Each participant has their own workstation at which they can review the cases. The curriculum is based on the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography's (SCCT) guidelines.
• Basic knowledge and comprehension of CT physics, contrast requirements and dynamics, cardiac CT acquisition foundations, and ultimately, medicines to improve picture quality and case reporting.
• Provide advanced scanner settings information to improve image quality and limit radiation exposure.
• Learn how to use the software.
• A checklist technique for interpretation of images with a systematic review for determining the presence of coronary stenosis and plaque.
• Understanding and awareness of the limitations of cardiac CT with regards to artefacts and pitfalls,
• Review of extracardiac abnormalities by CTA and angiography.
• Reporting of 100 to 150 cardiac CTAs that can be included as part of your registration in SCCT.
