The RCR and BSCI/BSCCT established a travelling cardiac professor with the aims of highlighting the role of imaging in the investigation of cardiovascular disease to promote best practice with regards to acquisition and reporting techniques, to promote cardiovascular imaging as a specialist interest in any NHS consultant appointment and to provide cardiovascular imaging teaching at different hospitals across the United Kingdom. There is an opportunity for hospitals to avail of the training, particularly in centres where Cardiac CT is not routinely performed.
The current Travelling Professor is Dr James Shambrook from University Hospital Southampton.
The list below details the various sites around the country which have been visited by prior Travelling Professors. If you feel your centre would benefit from Cardiac imaging training from the Travelling Professor, please request your Radiology TPD to liaise with the RCR to organise a visit. We encourage the membership to avail of this opportunity.
