Our Physician courses are aimed at Cardiologists, Radiologists, Nuclear Medicine Physicians and Trainees providing comprehensive lectures, interactive workstation sessions and live scanning.

We provide all aspects of training from initial accreditation through re-accreditation. We post regular "interesting cases" on our website to encourage our trainees continued education and professional development.

INITIAL ACCREDITATION COURSE. This intensive 5 day course will enable attendees to achieve maximal allowable cases (125 of 150 required) for ANZ Level A and full case load for SCCT Level 2 accreditation. This course exceeds the ANZ conjoint committee CTCA course guidelines.

100 correlated Library cases are sourced from a vast correlated library from all vendors, with 25 live cases from the ultra low dose Siemens FLASH CT with interpretation on latest syngo.via workstations. Emphasis will be on manipulation of the source axial data set to generate a report.  Knowledge/use of proprietary software/workstations is not necessary.

REFRESHER COURSE. 4 day course with at least 75 mentored cases.

LIVE CASE MINI-FELLOWSHIP. Multi day on-site programme to obtain 25 non-course live cases.

Discounted rates for attendees at follow up courses and for Fellows/Registrars in training.
