This intensive two-day course provides cardiologists, radiologists and general practitioners with an up-to-date focus on advanced cardiovascular imaging. This program combines CT and MRI in case-based and highly interactive sessions. Participants also learn about updates on cardiac CTA guidelines and appropriateness criteria from the lead authors themselves. From this course, participants gain a thorough understanding of how these tools can help them in their own clinical practices, including an emphasis on structural heart disease and new cutting-edge cardiovascular procedures. In addition to hands-on post-processing techniques, this course offers optional CME and self-assessment credits available online after the course.
