World leading experts in the field of cardiovascular CT from around the globe will discuss the role the current state of cardiovascular CT and the role it will play in 2019. Topics will include broadening clinical application, updates on technical optimization and discussion of current and future innovation and research in this rapidly evolving field.

SCCT Winter|2019: Dublin will explore all aspects of cardiovascular CT, including debates on areas of contention, with the aim of informing and educating participants on the strengths and weaknesses of cardiovascular CT, the increasing clinical indications for cardiovascular CT and areas where debate exists as to the most appropriate imaging investigation of cardiovascular disease

The objectives of this meeting are:

  1. To understand current best practice in cardiovascular CT in coronary artery disease, structural and congenital heart disease, electrophysiology and heart muscle and valve disease assessment.
  2. To be able to analyse whether cardiovascular CT is the most appropriate test to investigate cardiovascular pathology and be able to communicate the strengths and weaknesses of the technique compared with alternative imaging modalities.
  3.  To be aware of current research applications of cardiovascular CT that may impact on future clinical assessment.

Advanced Hands-on Cardiovascular CT Course (Level 2)

Sunday, Jan. 20 - Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019 | Croke Park | Dublin, Ireland

The course material will cover the whole spectrum of cardiovascular CT and fulfil the complete didactic requirement for Level 2 verification/accreditation. This includes typical findings and artefacts in CCTA and more broadly includes cases of grafts, stents, structural and valvular heart disease, simple congenital, and 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 150 cardiovascular CT cases. Each participant will have their own individual workstation. In addition, attendees will be introduced to the basics of cardiac anatomy, acquisition protocols, CT physics, clinical use of cardiovascular CT and much more. Every CT case will then be reviewed, on a large screen, followed by discussion and viewing of invasive coronary angiography or other correlation as indicated.


Participants will be able to have these 150 cases and associated lecture content 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.


Technologist/Radiographer Course

Tuesday, Jan. 22 - Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019 | Croke Park | Dublin, Ireland

This broad-spectrum training course, delivered by a highly experienced team, will provide technologists/radiographers with a complete understanding of both theoretical and practical aspects of the acquisition of cardiovascular CT. This course will be delivered to participants through a series of lectures, small group learning and practical opportunities. The aim is to provide candidates with the knowledge base and practical skills to competently perform Cardiac CT in their own workplace.


Topics covered include:

  • Understanding cardiac anatomy and ECG
  • Recorded scanning seminars
  •  CT pitfalls and perils
  • Post-processing and reporting
