Not only the important coronary arteries, we also covered:

A practical peripheral vascular CT session also covers:

Our teaching faculty is really great. Dr. I-Chen Tsai is a great teacher in cardiac and vascular CT. He was elected by ALL doctors in TCVGH as best teacher. Seize the opportunity to learn.

        This is I-Chen Tsai and John Hoe. In April 2014, we will have a high-quality teaching course in Taipei: Cardiac and Vascular CT teaching course.

        We invited 6 doctors with extensive CT experience and more than 100 articles on PubMed, sharing practical know-how lectures and step-by-step hands-on case reading. (See program here)

        Also, this course is curated by two Asian well-known teaching teams led by Dr. John Hoe from Singapore and Dr. I-Chen Tsai from Taiwan, both with great reputation in past activities.

‘Master class by Dr. Tsai I-Chen is very good.’
‘Not only a course, but also an inspiring spirit.’
‘Excellent course!’
’Dr. John Hoe's lectures were great.’
’More talks by Dr. Tsai I-Chen and Dr. John Hoe.’

        Yesterday, we opened the website for registration. Within 24 hours, more than 10 participants already registered. Please take a look at the website. If you like the activity, as a gentle reminder, please register early, before seats sold out. Hope to see you soon in Taipei.
