The use of CT in the pre-TAVI assessment

In this webinar, Dr John Younger will give a presentation about the requirements for a good TAVI acquisition, including scan parameters and injection protocols.

This session will explore

  • Considerations for TAVI CT scans
    • What does it involve?
    • How to optimize scan modes, acquisition parameters, and other factors to ensure good IQ
    • How to optimize reconstruction? What tools are available?
  • Processing and Image review
  • Recommendation – always remember the coined “MAGA” principle (join the webinar to learn what that is)

Live Q&A with the speaker follows at the end of the session.

He undertook a two-year fellowship in cardiac MRI at Leeds University, UK, before returning to Australia in 2007 to establish the cardiac CT and cardiac MRI programs at RBWH (in conjunction with the Medical Imaging Department). 

He specializes in cardiac imaging, particularly cardiac CT and cardiac MRI, but also transthoracic, transoesophageal and stress echocardiography. He is a regular speaker at national and international conferences, including SCMR 2011 (Nice, France) and CSANZ 2010 (Adelaide). He has acted as the scientific coordinator for several national meetings on cardiac imaging, particularly the Gold Coast Cardiac Imaging Symposium. He is the joint lead for the cardiac imaging stream on the program committee for CSANZ 2012 and is the chair of a committee establishing a pathway for the investigation of intermediate risk chest pain patients presenting to Queensland Health Hospitals. 

In 2010 he organized Australia’s first radiographer training course for cardiac CT and he has also taught on CT angiography courses with Harvey Hecht in Perth 2011 and John Hoe in Sydney, 2010. He has published in a variety medical journals including The BMJ and Heart. His most recent article was in The Lancet during January 2012 as an author of the landmark CE-MARC study.
