Computed tomography (CT) is a rapidly evolving technique to
evaluate cardiovascular anatomy and function. Clinical
applications include noncontrast CT for coronary calcification,
contrast CT to assess coronary anatomy and left ventricular
function, and hybrid procedures combining CT with other
noninvasive techniques. By the end of fellowship, the trainee
should be expected to have participated in 50 mentored
interpretations to achieve Level 1 competency.
Those who wish to interpret CMR studies or who desire advanced
training must have additional training.
