What you will learn

Course description: 

This workshop can help you develop a cardiac CT program by teaching you and your staff strategies and practices for managing chest pain in the emergency department. Delivered on site in your hospital by nationally recognized expert faculty, the 2-day workshop is aligned to benefit the specific needs and goals of your organization.

Modern multi-slice CT systems offer high image quality at a low dose, and fast acquisition speeds with the ability to correct motion of the heart in image capture and reconstruction. These capabilities have led to increased utilization of CT in clinical practice to diagnose coronary artery disease. CT cardiovascular imaging has many benefits, primarily its non-invasive nature, speed, accuracy, and cost effectiveness. This course provides a practical framework for implementing a Cardiac CT program in your emergency room.
