Advanced course for MDCT Coronary and Peripheral Angiography
Dear fellow clinical doctors, specialists, and residents, it is our great pleasure to organize and host the FIRST AND ONLY ACCREDITED ADVANCED COURSE FOR MDCT CORONARY AND PERIPHERAL ANGIOGRAPHY in Serbia, in the cardiology center PULSE. Organizer and lecturer – Dr. Ivana Šešić – radiology specialist with professional associates.
Seeing the ever-widening application of multislice CT diagnostics, especially in the field of coronary and peripheral angiography, and on the other hand the insufficient number of trained staff, we are launching MDCT training this year 2023. All interested parties will receive top education and training as well as the opportunity to engage in this radiological field in the future discipline.
Education includes theoretical teaching and practical work at several workstations in the premises of the diagnostic/cardiology center PULSE, which has a 128-slice Philips Incisive CT scanner of the latest generation.
Certificate: Participants who successfully complete the school for MDCT coronary and peripheral angiography will be presented with an accredited certificate worth 6 points.
(Accreditation for the educational program /KME/ assigned by the Medical Chamber of Serbia and the Health Council of Serbia).
Advanced course duration: April 3 – April 28, 2023 (4 weeks)
Advanced course price: 2.800 eur
