Computed Tomography

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.
