We'll discuss protocols and techniques to ensure that you are getting the best possible images, whilst looking at real-life example cases, to broaden your best practice. Sessions include a refresher on cardiac anatomy, as well as ECG principles, common clinical indications and essential protocols in patient preparation. In addition, we'll discuss the role development of Radiographers in Cardiac CT and how to further develop the very best Cardiac CT service to support positive patient outcomes.
In addition, you'll be guided through a range of Cardiac CT cases with Dr Robin van Lingen, Consultant Cardiologist at Cornwall Cardiology and Duchy Hospital, as part of a live case review session.

"This course is brilliant and would highly recommend it to my colleagues or in fact anyone starting their cardiac CT journey."
(Lee Gilham | Spire Healthcare | Radiographer – Imaging)
"I found that the speakers gave very clear, concise and very informative presentations that gave very progressive direction over a host of subjects related to cardiac CT. The anatomy visualisation and related to specific diseases made understanding what we are seeing on scans much easier, and more importantly to identify - very reassuring"
"Excellent course, well delivered and I can see how passionate you guys are about your service. I will definitely be sending my lesser experienced staff on this course as they will learn a lot without feeling over whelmed." (CT lead radiographer, NHS Trust)
