Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

Earn up to 22.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™and 22 SAM Credits

This two-day course focuses on the rapidly developing field of structural heart disease. Led by Amar Shah, MD, and Stefan Zimmerman, MD, the course provides physicians with essential background on the disease process and the central role cardiac and vascular CTA have in the treatment planning process for TAVR therapies.

The course provides an individual, hands-on experience with a case simulator to teach physicians how to accurately acquire and interpret cardiac and vascular CTA cases performed during the planning process for TAVR in both routine and challenging scenarios.

Attendees should have prior experience in reading cardiac CT and familiarity with their specified workstation.

Workstations: GE, Philips, Siemens, TeraRecon or Vital Images

Program and Learning Objectives


At the conclusion of this conference, participants will be able to:

  • Identify relevant anatomy and variants
  • Recognize the role of cardiac and vascular CTA in the planning process for structural heart disease
  • Explain how to obtain cardiac and vascular CTA measurements for valve sizing using advanced workstations
  • Identify how to successfully image patients in challenging clinical scenarios (i.e. arrhythmia and renal dysfunction)
  • Interpret imaging features that may impact successful placement of the valve
  • Know how the data is used in the treatment process and how to be a key member of the structural heart team.

What Your Colleagues Are Saying


I rate these courses highly and recommend them to my colleagues. The Education Center set-up with individual workstations and faculty input is fantastic. Keep doing what you’re doing!

Certificate


Attendees who interpret a minimum of 40 TAVR cases will be awarded a Certificate of Completion in Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.
