All programs are typically at Sentara Heart Hospital and Children's Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia. However we have transitioned to a live cloud-based course format using 4D cloud workstation servers in MS Azure. Each doctor receives real-time remote access to a cloud 4D workstation for complex teaching cases, while simultaneously videoconferencing in real-time, in the same small group intense and interactive format that we have run for 16 years, training over 1800 physicians. You will receive the added benefit of post-course access to the teaching cloud-based workstations, along with cloud hosted recordings of the didactics.
We can teach you this important skill over the Internet, interacting with me and the other doctors. Live acquisitions are by live video feeds and recorded acquisitions. You need a reasonably good Internet connection, a modern computer, and a quiet place to learn. Without the cost of travel, food, and COVID risks, from the comfort of your environment you will learn this important skill efficiently.

Multiple approaches to evaluation of cardiovascular CT studies exist with varying accuracy depending on the type of workstation, type of scanner, referral population, patient selection, and training mentor preferences. Few courses offer an algorithmic, comprehensive approach to interpretation and offer coronary cath/ IVUS, echo, and CMRI correlations or review extracardiac thoracic interpretation, life-threatening iatrogenic complications, ACHD, FFR-CT or the application of CTA to 3D peripheral angiography. Innovation Health Services has designed a comprehensive course to provide a unified educational program based on the standards co-developed by the ACC and SCCT.
A distinguished faculty will conduct a five day program acquiring and interpreting cardiovascular CT angiographic studies in a focused environment offering (1) an algorithmic, comprehensive approach to interpretation of up to 250 studies, with emphasis on elimination of interpretation errors and liability (2) invasive angiographic correlations for most cases (3) instruction in extracardiac thoracic interpretation, and (4) instruction in CT peripheral angiography, FFR-CT, and MRA angiography.
Sentara Heart Hospital Cardiac Diagnostic Unit and Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters, located at 600 Gresham Drive, Norfolk, Virginia. Currently we have transitioned to a virtual cloud-based format for all current training courses given the current pandemic, social distancing, and hospital visitor restrictions.
