World leading experts in the field of cardiovascular CT from around the globe will discuss the current state of cardiovascular CT and the role it will play in 2019. Topics will include broadening clinical application, updates on technical optimization and discussion of current and future innovation and research in this rapidly evolving field.

SCCT Winter|2019: Dublin will explore all aspects of cardiovascular CT, including debates on areas of contention, with the aim of informing and educating participants on cardiovascular CT's strengths, weaknesses, and increasing clinical indications.

The objectives of this meeting are:

  1. To understand current best practices in cardiovascular CT in coronary artery disease, structural and congenital heart disease, electrophysiology and heart muscle and valve disease assessment.
  2. To be able to analyse whether cardiovascular CT is the most appropriate test to investigate cardiovascular pathology and be able to communicate the strengths and weaknesses of the technique compared with alternative imaging modalities.
  3.  To be aware of current research applications of cardiovascular CT that may impact on future clinical assessment.
