Clinical Competence in Cardiac CT Compendium
Back by popular demand, 135 cases from Clinical Competence in Cardiac CT are available in an online format! Supplemented with all-new presentation content and worth up to 60 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, the Clinical Competence in Cardiac CT Compendium will help meet credentialing and/or maintenance requirements for Cardiac CT. Each case features a simulated workstation, with hundreds of datasets of fully navigable imagines, supplement diagnostic materials and detailed description of findings by expert faculty.
Credit Hours: 60 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
135 online Cardiac CT cases for credentialing and maintenance requirements! Worth 60 AMA PRA Category I Credits™.
The cases present a wide variety of cardiovascular pathology, including:
- The assessment of native coronary arteries for stenosis
- Bypass graft evaluation
- Coronary artery anomalies
- Pulmonary venous disease
- Diseases of the myocardium
- Cardiac valves and much more
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Review the use of Cardiac CT as a diagnostic tool in the care of patients.
- Describe Cardiac CT’s utility for management of patients with acute chest pain.
- Discuss Cardiac CT’s ability to address structural and functional aspects of coronary artery disease.
- Identify 135 manipulated and interpreted Cardiac CT examinations to the requirements established for credentialing or maintenance in this modality.
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of Radiologists, Cardiologists, Cardiac and Cardiovascular Surgeons and other physicians who use cardiovascular imaging in the care of their patients.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Global Education Group (Global) and Meetings by Mail. Global is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Global Education Group designates this enduring material for a maximum of 60 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
All credits for this enduring material are applicable to meet Self Assessment CME requirements for Maintenance of Certification (MOC).
ACCF/AHA and ACR Training Requirements
Upon completion, the 135 Cardiac CT cases and CME credits available from this activity can be applied to the training, credentialing and/or maintenance requirements established by the American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF), American Heart Association (AHA) and American College of Radiology (ACR), as detailed in the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (2011) 5, 279-285.
Specifically, the 135 cases are considered Category B by the ACCF/AHA. They can be used to meet the requirements for ACCF/AHA Level 1 Credentialing, or can be applied to the case requirements for Level 2 or 3. For those already credentialed, the CME credits could be used to meet maintenance CME requirements for Level 2 and 3.
Additionally, the 135 cases and CME credits can be applied to the ACR training or maintenance requirements for Cardiac CT competence.
