REGISTRATION WILL OPEN IN OCTOBER.
This course is led by Constantino Pena, MD, FSCCT, Juan Battle, MD, MBA, FSCCT and Jonathan Leipsic, MD, MSCCT.
Participants will learn how to perform and interpret CT for cardiovascular procedures involving all chambers and valves. Participants will learn how to use cardiovascular CT to optimize clinical outcomes in structural heart disease with a focus on procedure planning, device selection, and avoidance of complications. Percutaneous intervention in structural heart disease is rapidly changing the management of patients, and cardiovascular CT plays a major role in procedural planning. During this course you will learn from a multi-disciplinary, expert faculty using a hands-on, case-based approach. Learners will be able to practice and apply their skills on actual cases and interact with instructors one-on-one and in small groups.
Upon completing the course, learners will be able to:
- Apply cardiovascular CT to optimize clinical outcome in transcatheter structural heart procedures (including TAVR/TAVI) with a focus on procedure planning, device selection and strategies to reduce potential complications.
- Utilize image processing workstations from multiple vendors to perform post processing by making standardized measurements consistently and reproducibly.
- Identify unfavorable great vessel, valvular, and chamber anatomy; and identify and evaluate alternative approaches.
- Describe the anatomy and variants of the heart and great vessels and how that may impact management of structural heart disease.
For optimal experience, we strongly recommend the following for this tailored workshop:
- 2 monitors or 1 extra-large monitor
- An external mouse
- Internet with no browser restrictions and good bandwidth
- Computer with good audio and a microphone
- Willingness to install VMware client
All attendees will need to install the VMware for Philips on their computer. Dual or large monitors are ideal for attendees to view the chairs' screen while manipulating cases at the same time.
***The course will not be recorded.

Continuing Medical Education:
The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography designates this live educational activity for a maximum of 13 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.
Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Note: CME credit is preliminary and may increase or decrease incrementally as the program schedule evolves.
This activity is supported by educational grants from Philips and by in-kind support from Philips.
