12th CT Coronary Angiography Teaching Course (Basics - for SCCT Level 1 and 2 ) and

4rd Cardiac MR (Level 1) Teaching Course


Location: National Heart Centre Singapore, Level 7,

5 Hospital Drive, Singapore 169609


Supported by Toshiba Medical Systems


Thursday, 4rd August 2016


Course Overview

This teaching course is designed to enhance clinical practice skills by providing training in performing and interpreting coronary CTA examinations  as well as cardiac MR under the supervision of teaching faculty.

The course contents and workshop can also be documented to form part of SCCT requirements for Level 1 and Level 2 training. Many of the workshop workstation cases include coronary catheter angiography correlation.


The course contents are aimed for cardiac CT and cardiac MR users at Beginner and Intermediate level.


Practical Cardiac CT Masterclass Workshop

Supervised and mentored case reviews –performed on a Vitrea workstation ( at least 15 cases) and conducted by teaching faculty


Teaching cases will be projected on screen from Vitrea workstation and case discussion on each case using power point slides.


Attendee will observe cases being shown on workstation by speaker but will not have hands on manipulation of case on Vitrea workstation


Certificate of Proficiency

Attendees can be awarded a Certificate of Proficiency that can include the mentored number of cases reviewed during the Masterclass workshop session, for use in credentialing which can contribute to the case requirements specified in the ACFC/AHA/SCCT Level 1 and 2 requirements for Clinical Competence in Cardiac Imaging with Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance. The planned syllabus will also help attendees fulfill some of the requirements for Level A and Level B certification for the Conjoint Committee for Cardiac CT for Australia and New Zealand (see
