Course dates

Cardiac CT Academy Part B: 18-22 June 2018


Course language



Course director

Dr. Pál Maurovich-Horvat MD, PhD, MPH, FSCCT


Course description

The use of Multi-Detector CT (MDCT) for the diagnosis of various cardiac diseases has become increasingly important in recent years. This is mainly due to the introduction of high performance cardiac CT scanners to routine clinical use. Cardiac CT is a robust tool for the assessment of the cardiac and vascular anatomy and detection of coronary artery stenosis. Coronary atherosclerotic plaque characterization and percutaneous coronary intervention planning will have an important role in cardiovascular medicine in the near future.


Experienced cardiology and radiology clinicians from Semmelweis University have organized a 4-day comprehensive cardiac CT training course to teach “state-of-the-art” cardiovascular MDCT targeting both cardiology and radiology colleagues who already have experience in cardiac CT imaging. 100 Cases will be read and interpret during this course.


Course objectives

  • Offer background information about the scanner physics, contrast dynamics, acquisition methods, administration of medication to enhance image quality
  • Gain experience with 256-slice iCT scanner to acquire high quality coronary CT angiographies
  • Get familiar with image post processing and interpretation to detect coronary stenosis and plaque
  • Identify artifacts and pitfalls
  • Correlate CTA to catheterization
  • Plan percutaneous coronary interventions
