CT Academy

 

CT Academy 2019 Level 2

 

Venue: Semmelweis University
Date: 10th-13rd of December 2019

The use of Multi-Detector CT (MDCT) for the diagnosis of various cardiac diseases has become increasingly important in recent years. This is mainly due to the introduction of high performance cardiac CT scanners to routine clinical use. Cardiac CT is a robust tool for the assessment of the cardiac and vascular anatomy and detection of coronary artery stenosis. Coronary a

therosclerotic plaque characterisation and percutaneous coronary intervention planning will have an important role in cardiovascular medicine in the near future.

Experienced Cardiology and Radiology clinicians from Semmelweis University have organized a 4-day comprehensive cardiac CT training course to teach “state-of-the-art” cardiovascular MDCT targeting both Cardiology and Radiology colleagues who already have experience in cardiac CT imaging.
