Course Description

Currently, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Positron Emission Tomography are becoming the preferred methods to evaluate diseases affecting the heart, central vessels, and/or surrounding structures. Leaders in the field of cardiovascular CT, MR and nuclear medicine will review the current status and future of non-invasive cardiovascular imaging with CT, MR and PET.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Review basics of CT, MRI and PET for studying cardiac anatomy, function and hemodynamics.
  • Recognize the clinical indications of the newer CT and MR based angiographic techniques in the evaluation of vascular diseases.
  • Review well established clinical applications of CT and MRI in the evaluation of acquired and congenital cardiothoracic disease.
  • Assess the value and limitations of the newer CT, MRI and PET techniques in the evaluation of ischemic heart disease.
  • Explain new CT, MRI and PET techniques for imaging of the heart function and perfusion.
  • Recommend suitable strategies for contrast enhancement
  • Describe concepts in CT, MRI and PET based on perfusion and wall motion studies.
  • Evaluate clinical utility of CT and MR for coronary artery lesion detection.
  • Describe suitable strategies for image display, lesion detection and grading.
  • Review protocols, sequencing, parameter, and post-processing issues relevant to MR/CT workstations.

Target Audience

The course is intended for radiologists, cardiologists, residents, fellows, medical imaging scientists, radiology technologists, cardiovascular surgeons, and other physicians interested in cardiovascular imaging technology and applications.
