SCCT 2020 Board Review On Demand


The course will provide a comprehensive overview of cardiovascular CT and help prepare you to take the CBCCT and ACR Certification Board Exams.

After careful consideration, SCCT has decided to transform the 2020 Board Review and Update of CCT course into a virtual meeting. There will be two opportunities to take advantage of this course -- June 25 - 26, 2020 & August 27 - 28. The in-person meeting planned to take place in Seattle has been cancelled, due to coronavirus-related restrictions on travel and gatherings as well as concern about the health, well-being and safety of our attendees, faculty and their patients.

The SCCT Board Review Course is designed to engage physicians and healthcare professionals interpreting cardiac CT in a comprehensive exploration of all aspects of cardiovascular CT principles, methodologies, and clinical practice. Didactic lectures, image-based case examples, reviews of the research literature in cardiovascular CT, and question and answer sessions are designed to increase the competency and performance of the physician up to a level established for the Certification Board of Cardiovascular CT Exam and the Cardiac CT Certificate of Advance Proficiency Examination.
