SCCT Winter 2018: London Organizing Committee: Edward Nicol, MD, FSCCT, Leslee J. Shaw, PhD, FSCCT, and Todd C. Villines, MD, FSCCT

This two day conference with the leading international clinicians in cardiovascular computed tomography will present the latest research in the field to provide you with an insight into its future and how this can improve the outcome for patients.

This meeting will explore all aspects of cardiovascular CT in 2018, including debates on areas of contention. The aim of this meeting is to review the benefits and drawbacks of cardiovascular CT; the clinical indications for cardiovascular CT and debate current controversies about the use of appropriate imaging techniques applied in the investigation of cardiovascular disease.

Objectives

At the conclusion, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify best practices in cardiovascular CT in coronary artery disease, structural and congenital heart disease, electrophysiology and heart muscle and valve disease assessment.

  • Analyze whether cardiovascular CT is the most appropriate test to investigate cardiovascular pathology and to communicate the strengths and weaknesses of the techniques with alternative imaging modalities.

  • Evaluate the emerging research in cardiovascular CT to determine its possible role in changing the current evidence-based protocols or stimulating additional research.

  • Discuss the appropriate use of cardiovascular CT with colleagues and patients.

  • Discuss with colleagues the parameters which result in maximum image quality while minimizing radiation exposure during cardiovascular CT.
