Date:3/27/2008

atient is 61 years old. The benefit of ruling out the number one killer of Americans significantly outweighs the less than 0.002% chance of inducing a radiation-induced cancer in this population," said Dan Gebow, PhD, President of CVCTA Education. "However, common sense dictates that responsible physicians take an active role to make sure the dose remains minimal."

Nearly 1000 students have trained at CVCTA Education due to their commitment to high-quality education. All past and current students will be eligible to train in the LOW DOSE techniques at no additional charge. "The role of the medical societies is to set the guidelines and to ensure that accurate information about the benefits and risks of this diagnostic test is being disseminated to the public and medical community. There is still a great deal of work to be done in that arena," said Gebow. "As the leader in hands-on training, CVCTA Education's expertise is the practical, real world clinical application of CCTA. Therefore, we have taken the LOW DOSE initiative with our students to make sure this tool is used wisely."
