Radiology Certification Requirements

For Cardiac Computed Tomography

Physicians with prior qualifications in

general CT and/or thoracic CT.

Physicians who do not have prior qualifications in general CT

and/or thoracic CT.

  • Physicians must:

    • Obtain 30 hours of CME or Training from ACGME or AOA approved program in cardiac imaging, cardiac CT, anatomy, physiology and/or pathology OR documented equivalent supervised experience in a center actively performing cardiac CT.*

    • 50 cardiac CT case studies – interpretation, reporting and/or supervised review

  • Physicians must:

    • Complete an ACGME approved training program in the specialty practiced.

    • Obtain 200 hours of Category I CME in the subspecialty of CT reading.

      •  Of which at least 30 of the 200 CME hours should be in cardiac imaging, cardiac CT, anatomy, physiology and/or pathology OR documented equivalent supervised experience in a center actively performing cardiac CT.

    • Obtain 500 cases where student is interpreting and reporting under supervision.

      • Of which 100 must be a combination of thoracic CT or thoracic CTA.

      • Of which at least 50 must be Cardiac CT.

NOTES:

*Documented equivalent supervised experience is defined as supervision at a center where the proctoring physician meets these criteria to independently interpret cardiac CT.

Coronary artery calcium scoring does not qualify as meeting these requirements.

The requirements will become applicable by July 1, 2008.

Cases and CME must be obtained within a 36 month period.
