The use of computed tomography has become central in cardiac imaging. CT technology has developed rapidly with faster rotation speeds, better resolution and more sophisticated gating & reconstruction methods. 

GE Healthcare’s series of doctor-to-doctor courses focused on advanced CT cardiac imaging provides exceptional tuition in the use of these powerful diagnostic systems. 

The workshop instructors Professor Roobottom (consultant radiologist) and Dr Morgan-Hughes (consultant cardiologist) are both level III accredited with the BSCI. They have an extensive experience of cardiac CT from the early days of multi-slice CT, through Lightspeed* to today’s Discovery* CT750 HD and continue to develop the technique. This workshop series has been developed since 2004 and is one of the longest established training of its kind in the UK. 

Accreditation in cardiac CT is of particular importance with onward thoughts to revalidation.
