2020 Board Review and Update of Cardiovascular CT Course ONLINE
June 25 - 26, 2020 & August 27 - 28
After careful consideration, SCCT has decided to transform the 2020 Board Review and Update of CCT course into a virtual meeting. There will be two opportunites to take advantage of this course -- June 25 - 26, 2020 & August 27 - 28. The in-person meeting planned to take place in Seattle has been cancelled, due to coronavirus-related restrictions on travel and gatherings as well as concern about the health, well-being and safety of our attendees, faculty and their patients.
The SCCT Board Review Course is designed to engage physicians and healthcare professionals interpreting cardiac CT in a comprehensive exploration of all aspects of cardiovascular CT principles, methodologies, and clinical practice. Didactic lectures, image-based case examples, reviews of the research literature in cardiovascular CT, and question and answer sessions are designed to increase the competency and performance of the physician up to a level established for the Certification Board of Cardiovascular CT Exam and the Cardiac CT Certificate of Advance Proficiency Examination.
