Virtual CTA Academy: From Coronaries to TAVR

Find SCCT on Social Media 






This workshop is designed to describe CT assessment of coronary disease using a workstation-based teaching method and support from renowned faculty to demonstrate its practical applications. It will inform and educate delegates on the strengths and weaknesses of cardiovascular CT, in the assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD) and the increasing clinical implication for CCTA and new areas of development such as TAVR and Left Atrial Appendage and FFR CT.

Faculty: Cristina Fuss, MD, PhD, FSCCT & Andrew Choi, MD, FSCCT

The hands-on event is a SCCT-accredited course designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of physicians who interpret cardiac CT. It will encompass a exploration of all aspects of cardiovascular CT with emphasis on scan interpretation related to day to day clinical practice. Limited didactic lectures with strong emphasis on image-based case examples, interactive sessions with faulty are designed to increase the competency and performance. The course includes interactive sessions that will focus on the "core" knowledge that every practitioner of cardiovascular CT is expected to know, across a wide range of topics, such as coronary evaluation, plaque features, grafts, valvular heart disease, transcatheter valve planning, structural heart disease, masses, pericardial pathology and other commonly encountered clinical scenarios. Course highlights include independent workstations, actual cases selected for their teaching potential, and one on one interaction with faculty.

This virtual-based, two-day course will offer 50 cases with cath correlation on a hands-on systems along with didactic lectures. Cases will eligible for Level 2 case credits.

For optimal experience, we strongly recommend the following for this tailored workshop:

  • 2 screens or 1 large monitor
