Course overview

We are pleased to host our Summer 2024 Cardiac CT Level 2 course (leading towards BSCI/BSCCT and SCCT accreditation) at the Holiday Inn in Basildon. Join us for a study break in Essex (just outside of London), UK or join us online as Virtual Course places are also available.

Key highlights

Join our bi-annual UK/Hybrid Cardiac CT Level 1/2 Course this June (2024). Available to join us both in-person at a hotel in Essex (with easy access to London), you can also access the course virtually if you are unable to join us in the UK.

Teaching and hands-on training will be led by Level 3 accredited BSCI (British Society of Cardiovascular Imaging) trainers and led by our clinical lead, Dr Azhar Khokhar (Consultant Cardiologist, Head of Cardiovascular Imaging, Essex Cardiothoracic Centre) with the faculty including a mixture of consultant cardiologists and radiologists all with BSCI accreditation.

The full course follows the BSCI guidelines for Level 2 accreditation, and over 5 days will include formal lectures and hands-on training and analysis of a total of 150 contrast-enhanced cases, including coronary analysis of various pathologies, bypass grafting and extra cardiac findings etc, as required by the BSCI. Complemented by formal lectures, you will cover all relevant topics and examples of rare and interesting cases shown.

After completion of the course, you will be expected to perform and dual report 25 cases in your local settings before applying for level II accreditation.

For this course, there will be a maximum of 2 attendees per workstation (supported by CardIQ Function Xpress by GE Healthcare), and we will keep the numbers attending in-person to a maximum of 30 to increase learning potential and allow you to feel comfortable with asking questions in the small intimate group setting. As a result, early booking is essential. Each candidate will have the opportunity to see live scanning.


LEVEL 1 COURSE DETAILS

Cardiac CT Level 1 attendees will just attend the first 3 days of the course (Mon – Weds ) in order to complete the 50 cases required for Level 1. You will cover additional cases on top of the 50 needed to provide as much opportunity to learn from a wide variety of cases as possible.

If you are looking to gain your BSCI Level 2 certification and be confident in reporting Cardiac CT independently, this Level 2 course if perfect for you.
