Tutorial 9: Cardiovascular Imaging
Cardiovascular imaging has been at the forefront of innovation in recent years. With the advent of CT coronary angiography (CTCA) and cardiac MRI, the management of both acute and chronic cardiac disease has changed substantially. In addition, technological advances have allowed CT angiography and MR angiography to become an important adjunct in the management of peripheral vascular disease. It is important the student understands these modalities as they have a significant bearing on common clinical presentations. After completion of this tutorial students should be able to describe the key imaging findings in common cardiovascular diseases.
