CVCTA Education Expands to Six New Campuses and Finalizes Acquisition Of CVI Training
Date:11/25/2008

CVCTA Education helps physicians keep up to date with the latest in Cardiac and Peripheral CT Angiography, particularly in the detection of cardiovascular disease. CVCTA offers a variety of certification courses pertaining to cardiovascular imaging. Led by Medical Director Dr. Tony DeFrance, these popular courses are for cardiologists and radiologists.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 25, 2008 -- CVCTA Education of San Francisco, the leading educational provider to physicians in the area of advanced imaging procedures, announced that it is expanding its popular CTA Training program to six new locations:

  • Houston Texas: University of Texas Memorial Hermann
  • Piedmont Hospital: Atlanta Georgia
  • Phoenix Arizona: Mercy Gilbert in Chandler Arizona
  • Las Vegas Nevada: Nevada Imaging
  • Brussels Belgium: VCTC Teaching Center
  • Melbourne Australia: Monash University
"We are very proud to have several distinguished faculty members joining our team, including Dr. Szilard Voros, Dr. Carter Newton, Dr. Roger Bies, and Dr. Michael Bungo," said Dr. Tony Defrance, the Medical Director of CVCTA Education. "The future for Cardiac CT Angiography in the evaluation of chest pain looks very promising. Our primary focus is ensuring the highest quality education to physicians which leads to optimal patient care. These new partnerships ensure a standardization of high quality education across the US, Europe and Australia. This helps the physician eliminate the guesswork about whether their training program is going to make them proficient in CCTA or leave them under-trained."

Earlier in 2008, CVCTA Education finalized its acquisition of CVI Training center of Columbia, South Carolina. "The acquisition of CVI reunited Dr. DeFrance and Dr. Newton and gave CVCTA Education a nationwide training presence. The combined efforts of CVCTA and CVI allow us to provide the highest quality training to the greatest number of physicians," said Dr. Dan Gebow, President of CVCTA. He also added, "Physicians who want to be trained in CTA have until July 2010 to complete their training before the grandfather clause ends and training becomes more time consuming. The CVI acquisition brings medical expertise, industry veterans, and a strong relationship with Tera Recon, positioning us well for the 18 month training window," said Dr. Gebow.

"With recent changes in healthcare reimbursement, being trained to a high level of expertise in CTA is more than meeting the guidelines for credentialing" said Dr. Tony DeFrance, "it is about physicians performing a comprehensive and accurate interpretation in a reasonable amount of time. It is about using the best technology and the best workflow." CVCTA's CTA training program emphasizes efficient workflow and a systematic reading method. To ensure the best technology is used by practicing physicians, CVCTA has partnered with Vital Images, Tera Recon, and Toshiba, who offer the most advanced technology in 3D advanced visualization.
