SCCT offers specialty hands-on workshops designed to give an in-depth look at targeted techniques and technologies. Workshops will be held on Wednesday, July 11 and Thursday, July 12 and are pre-program events SCCT Annual Scientific Meeting and requires separate registration. Find out more about SCCT2019.

Space is limited; register early.

 

Coronary CTA Academy - Full Day
July 10, 2019 | 8am - 5pm
Chairs: Maros Ferencik, MD, PhD, MCR, FSCCT and Brian Ghoshhajra, MD, MBA, FSCCT

Mentored interpretation of coronary CTA on dedicated cardiac CT workstations. Learn to read cardiac CT scans using various post-processing tools, interpret coronary artery disease, and handle common artifacts. All cases will be accompanied by correlation with invasive coronary angiography and clinical scenario. Workshop includes 25 hands-on cases.

Learning objectives:

  • Apply cardiac workstation and available post-processing techniques to interpret coronary CT angiograms. 
  • Diagnose and report coronary artery disease on CT angiograms and correlate the results with invasive coronary angiography. 
  • Recognize the strengths and pitfalls of coronary CT angiography.

Advanced Coronary CTA Academy - Half Day
July 11, 2019 | 8am - noon
Chairs: Maros Ferencik, MD, PhD, MCR, FSCCT and Brian Ghoshhajra, MD, MBA, FSCCT


Mentored interpretation of advanced coronary CTA on dedicated cardiac CT workstations. Learn to read advanced cases including advanced coronary artery disease cases, coronary artery bypass cases, stent evaluation, and complex non-coronary anatomy. Master the use of post-processing tools for the interpretation of coronary CTA images, recognition of artifacts and solving clinical problems. Workshop includes 15 hands-on cases.

Learning objectives:

  • Apply post-processing techniques to interpret advanced coronary CT angiograms.
  • Improve skills in interpreting complex coronary cases.
  • Recognize the strengths and pitfalls of coronary CT angiography.

Comprehensive Cardiac CT Workshop: CT FFR, CTP & Beyond - Half Day
July 11, 2019 | 8am - noon
Chairs: Koen Nieman, MD PhD, FSCCT; Kakuya Kitagawa, MD, FSCCT; Francesca Pugliese, MD, PhD

Mentored interpretation of CT myocardial perfusion scans, CT-based FFR and other applications for the comprehensive interpretation of CAD. Participants will be introduced to the technical background and interpret the results in conjunction with findings on CT angiograms to guide revascularization decisions.  

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the role of new CT applications for the functional interpretation of CAD severity.
  • Understand the acquisition and interpretation of stress myocardial perfusion CT.
  • Interpret CT-FFR in conjunction with CT angiography.

CT for TAVR: Advanced applications and outstanding challenges - Half Day
July 11, 2019 | 1pm -4pm
Chairs: Jonathon Leipsic, MD, FSCCT and Jonathan Weir-McCall, MBChb, PhD

Mentored interpretation of CT exams performed in preparation of transcatheter interventions of aortic valve disease on dedicated workstations. Participants will learn the objectives of the exam and perform essential measurements to determine patient eligibility, select devices and guide safe performance of the procedure. 

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the objectives of cardiac CT in the preparation of TAVR.
  • Perform fundamental assessments to guide TAVR procedures.
  • Recognize and handle challenging situations.

Mentored interpretation of CT exams performed in preparation of transcatheter interventions of mitral valve disease on dedicated workstations. Participants will learn the objectives of the exam and perform essential measurements to determine patient eligibility, select devices and guide safe performance of the procedure.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the objectives of cardiac CT in the preparation of mitral valve interventions.
  • Perform fundamental assessments to guide mitral valve procedures.
  • Recognize and handle challenging situations.
