06/20/2014
Comment: Absolutely fantastic course. Well worth the price. Dr. Shapiro and Bush are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining teachers. I started with no knowledge at all about CT, and came away feeling prepared enough to take the CT boards and perform CTA, not to mention incorporating the modality more frequently into my practice.
06/20/2014
Comment: The course offers a mostly complete overview of cardiac CT for beginners, which also seems to serves as a good way to prepare for the board exam -- granted that I have not taken this exam yet. Course content, while not always perfectly organized, does cover the essential components and excels most in the area where it should: practical considerations for acquiring and analyzing these studies. There is ample opportunity for hands-on learning and one-on-one Q&A, which is another major strength of the course. There are no major areas of deficiency.
06/20/2014

 03/08/2013
Comment: The CT Practicum at JHU is an excellent 5 day course. Being a novice at cardiac CT and calcium scoring, I arrived at the course with no real knowledge of the technique and capabilities of the procedure. The course really explains every aspect of coronary CTA and calcium scoring. The material is presented in a very hands-on manner, with the majority of time rightfully spent reading cases and learning how to manipulate the images and software (in which there is a tremendous learning curve). The material was also presented in a way that would allow for cardiology (noninvasive or interventional) or radiology to successfully understand and utilize the technique. I would recommend this course to any cardiologist, cardiology fellow, or radiologist who is interested in coronary CTA or calcium scoring.

Comment: The course is run by Drs. Bush and Shapiro. They are both extraordinarily gifted teachers. The course is extremely good; it was the best Cardiac CT Course I have ever taken. The massive amount of preparation done by the course organizers shows. The case selection, discussions, didactic sessions are all superb. The course logistics and user-friendly course features [transportation, meals, workstation facilities] are all also second to none. I recommend this highly either as a first course or as a refresher for anyone who has been doing this for sometime, and who wants to "see how the experts do it". Either way, you will come away tremendously enriched.

 07/22/2011
Comment: I do not believe that a better conceived, organized and executed course is possible. Drs Shapiro, Bush, and Hees put together a triumph of a training course that in my mind, is the best the field can offer. Coming in as a trainee who had very little exposure to CCT, I left the course feeling as if there wasn't a an image challenge or a patient that I could not handle. The lectures were all fantastic, very informative and extensive. The cases were amazingly diverse, from the mundane (about 20 normal cases) to the most eclectic (coronary fistulas, aneurysms, myxomas). We covered every topic I could envision that CT might cover, the course directors were very receptive to feedback and answered all my questions above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in pursuing cardiac CT in a heartbeat.

 03/18/2011
Comment: Dr. Shapiro and Dr. Bush are not only experts in the field, they are also dedicated and entertaining teachers. The course is more informative than any I have previously attended, and far more enjoyable. As a physician with a moderate degree of experience in the field already, I can say without hesitation that this "introductory" course is also of tremendous benefit to individuals with any degree of experience in the field, from beginner to expert. Including detailed live and remote acquisitions, individual workstations, cath and echo correlations and a truly enjoyable and collegial atmosphere, it is hard to imagine a better use of CME time for anyone interested in the field of cardiac CT.
 03/18/2011
Comment: This course is a full 5 Day comprehensive course for Cardiac CT. Topics covered include clinical indications including appropriateness criteria, CT physics, radiation, contrast, scanning, and review of over 100 cases (with detailed teaching on how to use Vitrea software for manipulating images). In addition to coronary imaging, the course reviews bypass grafts and stents, EP indications including ARVD cases, and congenital cases and much more. All cases are provided with detailed history and echo/cath correlation. The teachers/lecturers are very thorough, answer all questions, and very nice to work with. In addition, shuttle from hotel to the campus, breakfast, and lunch are provided every day with a special dinner one night. A large binder with educational material, DVD and 3 mo remote access to cases is offered after the course. The course is truly the total experience from beginning to end and is highly recommended.
 03/18/2011
Comment: I am a Brazilian Radiologist, doing Cardiac CT since 2006. This is the 3rd international course that I do, and would like to express that was the best one. The whole week discussion, with clinical and images correlations and patients follow up. Very nice course for CME, also with a medical background history from Hopkins.
 03/18/2011
Comment: The training course was an amazing experience. The title of the course says it all... "The Total Experience". Dr. Shapiro and Dr. Bush did an exemplary job in getting us through 150 representative cases of cardiovascular CT. They are both fantastic teachers; efficient and thorough. They were available to answer questions at all time... not to mention their hospitality, kindness, great sense of humor and more... Long days of the course passed by like a breeze... I highly recommend this course to all cardiology fellows, practicing cardiologists and radiologists interested in non-invasive imaging.

 05/07/2010
Comment: Radiologist Perspective Getting more of a cardiologist perspective (staff are all cardiologists, but did have 1 radiologist guest lecturer) was very helpful. Dr. Shapiro and Bush do the majority of the teaching and are very knowledgeable, enthusiastic teachers that make the 10+ hour days bearable if not entertaining. I would not consider another course that is any shorter as all the time is needed and time was generally well spent with little down time. I would highly recommend the course. Limitations: Very limited coverage of congenital and shunt leasions. They do not do any prospective CTA here do to equipment limitations and so if you have that ability on your scanner, you may want to consider going else where to work with those that do use that technique.
 05/07/2010

Comment: Excellent review of Cardiac CT from the basics. I had no experience with Cardiac CT imaging prior to attending this course and I left with a considerable confidence regarding my ability to use this modality to diagnose a variety of cardiac pathology. It is very well organized, the curriculum is comprehensive and the fellows discount also helps a lot. My colleagues have taken this course and it was highly recommended to me. They teach on vitrea workstations so if your institution uses the same software it helps.
 12/11/2009

 10/23/2009
Comment: Excellent course
 09/26/2009
Comment: Very comprehensive course. As a radiologist in my final year of training I found the supervision by cardiologists an advantage to the course, even though some radiologists may not agree! This cardiology/ clinical contribution gave a lot of clinical perspective to the technique and focuses on the patient mainly rather than imaging only. The fellow rate was very attractive too. Some of the lectures were somewhat long; replacing them may be with more cases would have made the course perfect. This is the only course I have attended, but at the end of the course I feel that I am confident to start my own independent practice.
 09/25/2009
Comment: Excellent! Highly recommended for radiologists who have not working much with cardiologists. Most of the cases have cath or echo correlation. These are very valuable to radiologists.
 09/25/2009
Comment: Excellent and very rewarding experience... Drs Bush and Shapiro have done an great job... thanks Dr zhang
 09/25/2009

 09/25/2009
Comment: The course was fantastic. Drs. Bush and Shapiro are excellent educators. They took a topic that was complicated and vast, and through great course design and perfect pacing, I was able to grasp key concepts and in a matter of a day start feeling comfortable with the workstation, with cardiac anatomy on CT, and with interpretation. The rest of the course was spent increasing our knowledge base and reviewing cases.
 09/25/2009
Comment: An excellent and highly recommended course. (Comment from an UK cardiologist)
 09/25/2009
Comment: This is an excellent overall course. I am in my last year of cardiology fellowship and I found this course extremely helpful.

Comment: Excellent course with multitude of excellent cases and excellent workstation time very well monitored. Best course that I have taken in past 3 years. Hones skills very well for level 2-3 CT reading. Outstanding course directors and speakers with very relavent presentations.
 07/24/2009
Comment: The course bank was very broad and applicable to learning this modality. I found that although teaching was of good quality, this course was geared more towards the needs of a cardiologist wishing to learn CCTA than a radiologist such as myself. Nevertheless, this was a worthwhile experience.
 07/24/2009
Comment: Overall, I felt that this course was excellent!! I had been to the ACCF/CCT Practicum in DC. The differences in the two courses were as follows for the same price: -Here at Hopkins, there was one person per station whereas at the ACC course, there were 2 people per workstation -The Hopkins course helped you meet Level II requirements whereas only level I reqquirements were met with the ACC course -There was a great amount of individual attention afforded to all the attendees here at the Hopkins course -Drs. Bush and Shapiro were EXCELLENT with the live cases. Overall, this ourse was truly amazing and I genuinely enjoyed the experience, despite the long days and rigor of the course!
 07/24/2009
Comment: This was one of the best courses I have ever attended, both at a professional and personal level. I did not expect to learn so much in 5 days in such a pleasant atmosphere. I especially enjoyed the combination of core lectures and hands-on workstation experience. All lecturers were excellent and extremely helpful in explaining the use of the workstations. I can highly recommend this course and will do so at my training program.
 07/24/2009
Comment: Excellent experience. Clinical correlation with the cases was emphasized and represented a very valuable dimension of the course. 1:1 workstation beneficial, as you had the opportunity to develop a particular thought without needing to negotiate with another. Essentially, they have created a very effective learning "bubble" with learning occurring in real time through visual, auditory, passive and active modalities throughout the weeklong course. Extra time (compared with other courses) allows you to really integrate the information in a way that would be very difficult otherwise.
 07/24/2009
Comment: Very good course. My only suggestion would be for more careful thematic grouping of cases reviewed on the first two days to better illustrate specific tools/strategies for using the image review workstation. Otherwise, my hats off to Drs. Bush and Shapiro for their level of energy, enthusiasm and support for attendees. That they do this course monthly is a testament to their commitment to the field.
 07/24/2009
Comment: I didnt had any experience of CTA in the past. Today i feel confident that i can read CTA. I think course was worth taking. You will enjoy too.
 06/19/2009
Comment: This is the best hands-on training course that I have been on. - Be warned, it's a 12 hour day at minimum though! The training was delivered with massive enthusiasm, with a great sense of humour, in a very relaxed learning atmosphere. Despite the huge expertise and pedigree of the trainers, they are very open and gracious. Contentious interaction is encouraged, and best practice discussed based on the latest evidence. This is an exceptional course and truly excellent- our 320 service has been given a great start!
 06/19/2009
Comment: very well planned, excellent and patient course directors with excellent case collection. I am glad that I attended this course
 06/19/2009

 06/19/2009
Comment: A phenomenal course; the days were very long and intense yet extremely useful and necessary. To obtain level II training in 5 days is not an easy task but Dr. Shapiro and Dr. Bush truly have put together a course that fulfills this with a harmonious mix of didactics, hands-on experience, and interactive sessions that truly was invaluable. I highly recommend this course to all and look forward to returning for further advanced training!!!

 10/17/2008
Comment: This an excellent hands-on course. I did not know how to use a workstation before this course and the course instructors were very patient with me, often having to work me through the techiques several times staying with me and checking on me to make sure I got the technique down. I couldn't ask for more. The instructors were excellent, experienced and patient. The instructor to student ratio was great. I worked on my own workstation so that I could get the hands-on experience that I lacked. I recommend it highly.

Comment: Just attended 2 days John Hopkins Cardiac Review course( sep 5th and 6th). It was great!
 08/29/2008
Comment: This was the finest educational experience I have had since I completed my cardiology fellowship. The emphasis is on teaching of competence in the fullest sense including principles of the discipline, supervision of performance of studies including patient safety issues, workstation skills for review of studies, as well as interpretation of coronary and non-coronary findings.
 08/29/2008
Comment: One of the best courses I have taken. Excellent presentations from multiple experts mixed with CTA case reviews. Every student has a separate workstation for hands-on training, with individual help from instructors. Similarly, the logistics were worked out well, with food and transportation arranged. I have not taken any other CT courses but I cannot imagine a better one. Feel free to email me with further questions.

Comment: I recently attended a 2 day refresher course at Hopkins. I took the initial 5 day course back in September,2007. Like many others, I have not been very active in cardiac CT since then and was pleased to hear that the good people at Hopkins were offering a refresher course free of charge to all those who had their initial training there. I went there expecting that we will be "merged" with the main course attendees. However, to my surprise, the few of us were the main event. There were three of us and we had the full attention of Drs Shapiro and Bush. These two give their heart and soul to teaching CT. In addition to brushing up on my skills, I earned 50 extra cases towards level 3 and 14.5 CME credits. All for free! you cannot beat this deal. I strongly recommend this course to any one who is serious about cardiac CT. The quality is superb!
 06/06/2008

 04/25/2008
Comment: Absolutely the best course on imaging I've ever had the pleasure to attend. Extremely well organized, well executed, and taught by leaders in the field who know how to teach a very complex imaging modality by breaking it down into sections that are easy to understand and follow. Having your own individual workstation is key and the case compilation is amazing! I rate this course as superior, and I highly recommend it to anyone desiring a better handle on cardiovascular CT.
 04/25/2008

 04/25/2008
Comment: This was the best educational course I'd ever had. Each student was assigned with a workstation. There were always 2-3 experts to help us how to use and how to interpret. The cases were also great from atherosclerotic diseases to tumors including some very rare cases, and reviewed with a great discussion by all the participants. The lectures cover everything you need to know about CCT as well as cutting-edge technology and upcoming research.
 04/25/2008
Comment: Excellently organized and run CCT course. They stated what the course would provide and provided everything and more than what they stated. I much appreciated the excellent individual work stations and the readily available instructors for 1 on 1 interaction. Their love of CT in the care of cardiac patients and love of teaching and sharing was quite evident and appreciated. Thank you.
 04/25/2008
Comment: The course was well-organized, and the course directors were knowledgeable and extremely open and accessible for questions. The availability of one workstation per person allowed for ample hands-on practice of the post-processing/analysis software. The duration of the course and volume of cases was perfect for Class II certification. I highly recommend this cardiac CT course.
 04/25/2008
Comment: It is an excellent course. The lectures and the organization of the course were fantastic and it is one of the best courses that I had in the last years! The course combines frontal lectures and interactive CT readings in an optimal and a very interesting way. In addition joining the technician while scanning, and seeing on the desktop reomote cases was a great idea. In addition, I would commend the IT support and the active involvement of the directors of the course and their serious yet very pleasant and friendly attitude! The logistic part was perfect thanks to Mrs. Orr. In addition to learning a lot about coronary CT, I learned a lot about how to orgaqnize courses. I would recommend this course warmly to all my colleagues who are interested in coronary CT.
 04/05/2008
Comment: I attended the cardiac CTA review course at Hopkins. It was a great opportunity for additional educational after the main five day Cardiac CT Practicum course. I strongly recommend both these courses.
 04/05/2008
Comment: This is an excellent course as regards to the depth and material, with losts of cases to illustrate both every day encounters with CAD and also cases to illustrate rare one of a kind anomalies. The directors Drs. Bush & Shapiro are very talented, knowledgeable and very friendly which puts you at ease right away. As a bonus there is a refresher course that is offered for free for anybody who would like an update on the technology and more cases review. Overall one of the best if not the absolute best course in CTAs.
 04/05/2008
Comment: Very pratical, helps beginner not only technically but also clinically.
 04/05/2008
Comment: Firstly, I have to say many thanks to all of the team in this course. This course have brought me into the new world of cardiac imaging. From the beginning of zero percent of how to figure the pircure of cardiac CT until nowadays I am able to have confidence in some extent to be an independent interpreter. I would say that truly this course should suit anyone who would like to commence the cardiac CT experience with world class experienced mentors. In addition, this course does provide you all variances of Cardiac CT image you might encounter with in your life. I would give 5 stars to the knowlodge I got from this course, and I would give 100% confident to the quality of all staff and all course materials. Kind regards,
 03/28/2008
Comment: Excellent course with a very professional faculty.
 03/21/2008
Comment: EXCELLENT course-lots of practical experience, you have your own work station, 3-4 teachers who are very nice and user friendly and appropriate lectures. I am a radiiologist with a lot of cardiac experience and the course was very good for me. I hope I will be able to implement all I have learned at home in my hospital. Food good, transportation excellent, long days, but worth it. I highly recommend this course
 03/21/2008

 02/29/2008
Comment: The course was excellent. Drs. Bush and Shapiro and their assembled faculty were all wonderful, kind teachers and made learning Cardiac CTA a breeze. The case materail range form the basic to the rare and exotic. The apporach was very practical with plenty of hands-on time at the Vitrea workstations. The week is can be greuling at times, due to the required course material, but well worth it. Highly recomnended!

 02/29/2008
Comment: This is an excellent course!!!!!!! Every cardiologist interested in CTA should attend.
 02/29/2008
Comment: Great lectures, great faculty, great cases. One person per workstation is excellent, size of class ensures prompt interactions with instructors. Good speed (not too slow or too fast). In addition, I think the best facilities/equipment I have encountered for a course (temperature of room, computers without major (or minor) problems, ERGONOMIC chairs) - it's the little things that make a difference. Also nice social program. Registration process was easy. Great support staff. Also: excellent technologist providing hands on experience.
 02/29/2008
Comment: This course was invaluable to me as a radiologist trying to assimilate cardiac CTA and apply it in my hospital. We have a 64 slice scanner, and I need to understand its management, drawbacks, and benefits. This course had a diverse clientele and faculty with all types of cardiologists and radiology specialists. The feeling was very collegial between the various groups, both students and instructors. I was amazed at how universally available and accessible all the instructors were. I felt like I got plenty of attention, lots of hands on training, and I feel confident in going forward and reading these types of studies .... granted that I will be vigorous in getting good clinical input from the cardiologists and strive to review as much of the cardiac angiography correlation as possible. I cannot imagine any course like this that could be more thorough, useful, and enjoyable. Wow!
 02/29/2008
Comment: This was really a great experiance at Johns Hopkins. I am pleased with the quality of teaching and efforts put in by the faculty to make this course succcesful. There was lots of hands on experiance on the computer technology related to cardiac CT.

 02/29/2008
Comment: Excellent course. The content is very usefull and practical and the course directors and co-directors all were on top of us to help in understanding the process and the meaning as well as the interpretation of the different images. They could not be better. The organiaation was also superb, nothing was left loose. Great Course, something complex made easy by the superb teaching habilities of the tutors.
 02/29/2008
Comment: Very intense well done course. I can't imagine doing more in 5 days. Excellent variety of CCTA cases and cath correlation. Dr's Bush and Shapiro, as well as all the other instructors, were approachable and very knowledgable.

Comment: Excellent course. Case mix is outstanding -- it condenses and distills years of interesting cases. Typically, cath or other imaging modalities correlations are available.
 12/07/2007
Comment: A well organized, comprehensive CT angiography course focused on hands-on case reading. The ratio of experienced instructors to students was about 1:3, and having them over my shoulder while I read really improved my facility with the workstation. Even the coffee was good!
 12/07/2007
Comment: Great course, very well organized. Excellent faculty.
 12/07/2007
Comment: Great Faculty who understand private practice, excellent lectures. Classes are long but worth every minute with perfect accomodations and now the coffe is second to none. I am glad I came and learned....
 12/07/2007
Comment: Excellent course. A must for radiologists who want to do cardiac CTA. Drs. Bush and Shapiro effectively teach cardiac CTA from every aspect. They and their speakers cover how to use the 3d workstation, cardiac anatomy, and how to read cardiac CTA. They also go into the epidemiological studies for the appropriateness or inappropirateness of cardiac CTA. As a non cardiologist, I felt very welcomed by the staff and the group. The environment was non threatening and friendly. One of the biggest things that you will learn is the cardiology lingo. You don't want to be a radiologist who just says there is CAD. The course teaches you the way cardiologists think as well as cardiology terminology.
 12/07/2007
Comment: This course provides an excellent learning experience for cardiac CT and CTA through a good balance between lectures and hands-on experience. There are ample of illustrative cases covering a broad spectrum of pathologies. The faculty members are very experienced and encourage discussion and are very supportive and available throughout the course. Highly recommended experience.
 12/07/2007
Comment: World-class faculty, outstanding teaching, great cases. Enjoyable and educational. Highly recommended.

Comment: The Johns Hopkins Cardiac CT Practicum is an excellent course with lots of hands on experience in a fun, supportive learning environment.
 10/19/2007
Comment: Fantastic course. Plenty of "hands-on" experience from renowned experts in the field and generous angiographic correlations. Great personal attention from the instructors.
 10/19/2007
Comment: Extensive case file with cath correlation. Great teaching; 2 physicians in room throughout course. Plenty of hands-on experience as well as lecture material I researched many courses before selecting the Hopkins course and this is definitely one of the best.
 10/19/2007
Comment: Very intensive courses with extensive workstation instruction and practice. Case variety is excellent as expected for a referral center. Opportunity to personal discussions and questions are extensive. The course is very expensive but leaves one feeling immersed in this infant field.
 10/19/2007
Comment: This 5 day practicum was truly amazing. Very well organized, with excellent combination of didactic material followed by correlated cases. Each person gets their own workstation and individual attention from multiple distinguished CCTangiographers. Dr.'s Bush and Shapiro, the course directors, share their extensive CT experience and library of cases in a relaxed and collegial fashion, without rushing participants through the cases. I have done 2 other short courses, but did not feel confident to accurately read CCTA until this course. I would recommend it without reservation to anyone interested in a quality, evidence based approach to CCTA.
 10/19/2007
Comment: Very professional team. CTA technology and application from both radiology and cardiology perspectives. Might sound expensive, however, the amount and quality of information given during the course make it worth the cost. Compared to a previous course I've been to, this one is one of the best. Doubt other programs can even get close (facility, time dedicated to visitors, quality of cases, lectures, ...). Weakness: No peripheral studies.
 10/19/2007
Comment: The Johns Hopkins Cardiac CT course is a remarkable learning experience. In the week long course, we saw 100 cases. More importantly, a very large percent of the cases had clinical, cath, or echo correlations that put in perspective how well CT can diagnose a wide range of pathologies. The faculty is energetic, friendly, and incredibly knowledgable. This course is outstanding.
 09/28/2007
Comment: Excellent training in cardiac CT. Ample hands-on with work stations. Attentive faculty who are experts in the field. Ample case volume. Intensive schedule is appropriate for depth of knowledge required in the field.
 09/28/2007
Comment: Excellent experience. One on one training. Extensive material. Very well organized. Lectures are given by various Hopkins faculty with different perspectives. Coffee is bad!
 09/28/2007
Comment: Great mix of didactic lectures and interactive cases. Will become quickly comfortable with using workstation in analyzing and interpreting CTA and calcium score.
 09/28/2007
Comment: Excellent course with a wide variety of cardiac cases with an emphasis on coronary and graft evaluation. Multiple cases were demonstrated in the CT lab (it is mandatory) to make me well versed with the technique. Individual workstations in the classroom give students a good and ample experience to analyze cases hands on without sharing. The faculty members are very experienced and encourage discussion and are very supportive. Conclusion: Great course. Thoroughly enjoyed.
 09/28/2007
Comment: Multiple excellant faculty that were available at all times and gave a very well rounded course. We oberved different opinion and approach toward CTA

 09/28/2007
Comment: Excellent course with very good didactic presentations and extensive hands-on image manipulation and instruction in interpretation of a broad range of cardiac images including normal and abnormal anatomy.
 09/28/2007
Comment: Great course. Dr. Bush and Dr. Shapiro work very hard during to course to give a complete overview of CT of the heart. They do an excellent job in reviewing the latest didactic material. There is extensive case list with a diverse set of diagnoses and problems. The setting is excellent with one Vitrea workstation per person.
 09/28/2007
Comment: The most comprehensive and practically most useful teaching program I have attended as CME. Both faculty members were present througout the day to assist and answer questions. Interaction between the attendees and faculty was very informal and educational. All questions were answered and explanations given in detail; audiovisual equipment and help using the workstation was excellent.
 09/28/2007
Comment: Outstanding course! Really liked hands-on, interactive cases.
 09/28/2007

Comment: This is a thorough course, with great one -on-one teaching with a dedicated staff. You will be able to take charge of a CT-Cardiac Lab when you have finished this course.
 09/17/2007
Comment: I attended this course in March 2007 and got a adequate platform for starting Cardiovascular CT studies in my home hospital. I found the workstation easy to learn and a good tool for interactive teaching. World class, well motivated faculty and well planned lectures and more importantly serious hands on training. Highly recomended for both Cardiologists and Radiologists.
 09/16/2007
Comment: I took this course in March 2007 and I found this to be the best course I've taken in the last 21 years of active practice as a cardiologist. Dr. Shapiro and Bush's course was superb. Both physicians are not only very bright, but very down to earth, both open to all questions, etc. Both of them spent from 7 AM to 7 PM Monday through Friday for the course. I was very happy with the one on one teaching.
 09/14/2007
Comment: Facilities: The best. Attention: Super. Teachings skills: Incredibly swift, smooth, easily understandable, friendly ambience, coherent, organized and very updated material. Equipment: Toshiba 64 scanner. The same at my place in PR! Undoubtedly an exellent course. Recomended fully.
