Description

Imperial Lead Provider is pleased to announce this National Training Day relevant to Cardiology trainees.

This 3-day intensive training course is comprised of

  • Expert lectures meeting Level 1 accreditation
  • Workstation hands-on review of cases
  • In-course evaluation, which is scored to assess your learning

Designed for SpRs or consultants seeking BSCI Level 1 competence in Cardiac CT.

The didactic lectures cover the following:

  2. Different gating techniques, their advantages and limitations
  3. Radiation dose inherent in cardiac CT as well as dose reduction strategies.
  4. Contrast kinetics, administration, contraindications and complications
  5. Cardiac anatomy and physiology as applicable to CT
  6. Techniques of image reconstruction and post-processing
  7. Techniques to minimize and reduce image artefacts
  8. Cardiovascular risk assessment
  9. Current indications and applications of cardiac CT
  10. Basics of cardiac CT interpretation
  11. Anatomy of the heart and thorax

CT 2

The majority of the course is hands-on examination of CT images on an imaging workstation, under close consultant supervision. The intensive 3-day nature of this support and training means spaces are scarce, so early booking is advisable.
