JACC Paper Reimagines Training in Cardiac CT For Cardiology Fellows
In a recent paper published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Scott E. Janus, MD; Mohamad Karnib, MD; and Sadeer G. Al-Kindi, MD, FACC, call for increased exposure and requirements for cardiac computed tomography (CCT) during cardiology fellowship, which they write has become an integral component of clinical cardiology. They add that doing so will help to "equip future generations of cardiologists to achieve the desired competency in this growing modality." In an editorial response, Ron Blankenstein, MD, expands upon Janus et al., acknowledging the need for more trained cardiologists and radiologists who can independently perform and interpret CCT studies.
