Course overview

We are pleased to host our third Middle East Cardiac CT Level 1/ 2 course (leading to BSCI accreditation/towards SCCT) in the UAE. Join us for a week of Cardiac CT in Dubai, as we review 150 CTCA cases with BSCI Level 3 accredited trainers from the UK.

Key highlights

We’ll host our third Cardiac CT Level 1/2 Course in the Middle East, in Dubai. Led by our clinical lead, Dr Azhar Khokhar (Consultant Cardiologist, Head of Cardiovascular Imaging, Essex Cardiothoracic Centre), teaching and hands-on training will be led by level 3 accredited BSCI (British Society of Cardiovascular Imaging) trainers.

The course follows the BSCI and SCCT guidelines for level 2 accreditation, and over 5 days will include formal lectures and hands-on training using Circle cvi42 on workstations. The course includes 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, 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.

Hosted at the ​InterContinental Dubai Marina, you’ll enjoy a luxury Cardiac Imaging Study Break in the heart of the city, just a short walk from Jumeirah Beach and the Dubai Tram connects you to the city’s entertainment precincts.

Supported by Circle Cardiovascular Imaging

35 CPD/CME Credits can be claimed in accordance with the CPD Scheme of The Royal College of Radiologists.

If you are looking to gain your BSCI Level 2 certification and be confident in reporting Cardiac CT independently, this is the course for you. This course also contributes towards the 200 cases required by SCCT but please do check the SCCT accreditation guidelines for further information on their specific requirements.
