CTA Academy: From Coronaries to TAVR
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

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 CTCA and new areas of development such as TAVR and Left Atrial Appendage, and FFR CT.

The course material is selected to cover typical findings and artifacts that can mimic or obscure stenoses, as well as difficult anatomic situations. Cases are selected to highlight specific teaching points. Participants will have extensive exposure to interpretation of carefully selected coronary CT angiography datasets, including hands-on evaluation of 35 coronary CTA cases (maximum of 2 participants per workstation and at least 15 minutes allocated to each case). In addition, attendees will be introduced to the basics of interpreting cardiac CT cases performed for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) planning.

Every CT case will then be reviewed, on a large screen, followed by viewing of invasive coronary angiography or TAVR valve implantation for correlation. Participants will be able to have these 50 cases count towards the "Minimum Number of Mentored Examinations Interpreted" according to the ACCF/AHA Clinical Competence Statement on Cardiac CT and MR (Budoff et al, JACC 46:2005;383-402), which lists 50 cases of mentored examinations interpreted as a requirement for Level 1 training, 150 cases for Level 2 training, and 300 cases for Level 3 training.
