Arlington, Va. (June 5, 2020) —The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) announced plans today to hold the 2020 Board Review Course in a virtual format. The in-person course planned to take place in Seattle, Wash., has been cancelled, due to coronavirus pandemic restrictions on travel and gatherings as well as concern about the health, well-being and safety of our attendees, faculty and their patients.
The first-ever virtual Board Review Course will be held on two occasions — Thursday, June 25 and Friday, June 26, as well as Thursday, August 27 and Friday, August 28. The virtual course will include the same key aspects of the in-person course, including didactic lectures, image-based case examples, reviews of the research literature in cardiovascular CT, and question and answer sessions.
“We are excited to offer the Board Review Course in an online format so our members and attendees can stay educated on the latest scientific research in the field of cardiovascular CT” says Board Review Chair, Armin Zadeh, MD, PhD, MPH, FSCCT. “By offering the Board Review Course online we can extend the reach of SCCT’s educational offerings and give participants access to the knowledge they want and need.”
The virtual course includes an expanded number of interactive sessions that will focus on the "core" knowledge that every practitioner of cardiovascular CT is expected to know, across a wide range of topics, as determined by the examination board of the CBCCT and the ACR. Course highlights include an end-of-course exam simulates the testing environment, audience response question and answer that accompanies every lecture, and two dedicated imaging review sessions with an expanded question and answer format.
