A team of leading physicians in the announced the formation of the first workstation-based course to train cardiologists, radiologists, surgeons, nurses and imaging techs in the accurate assessment and selection of trans-aortic replacement valves (TAVR).
The course includes theoretical and practical application of both MDCT and Echo for screening, sizing and long-term outcome assessment. The course is lead by pioneers in the TAVR imaging field: Dr. Jonathan Leipsic, Dr. James Min and Dr. David Wood. Participants in the course will benefit from direct hands-on workstation from the experts, as well as take home practice cases and on-going updates to this rapidly evolving field.
“One missing component in the implementation TAVR is the absence of imaging training standards. This course works to ensure the entire medical team performs at the highest proficiency obtainable for TAVR imaging,” said Dr. James Min of Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
Courses will be held in San Francisco and elsewhere throughout the US and Canada.
