The BSCI/BSCCT is a multi-professional society for all those interested in and practicing cardiovascular imaging.
We are a multi-modality cardiac imaging society, including cardiac computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear imaging. This is reflected in our scientific meetings, which enables us to discuss and compare different imaging techniques.
We are the Specialist Interest Group for cardiovascular imaging for the Royal College of Radiologists and part of the Imaging Council of the British Cardiovascular Society. We act as the national special interest group for cardiovascular computed tomography. This function has been brought together as part of the British Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (BSCCT) within the BSCI.
The objectives of the society are to:
- Promote the highest standards of practice of cardiovascular imaging in the United Kingdom
- Promote education, training and the dissemination of scientific evidence in all aspects of cardiovascular imaging
- Advise the Royal College of Radiologists and the British Cardiovascular Society on cardiovascular imaging
- Nurture and evolve the links between the cardiology and radiology communities
Education is a central part of our activities. The Society organises an annual meeting, webinars and advanced cardiovascular imaging meetings dedicated to cardiovascular imaging. For trainees we organise core training days in cardiovascular computed tomography. Our online education platform provides access to on demand lectures and education.
Other society activities include providing accreditation, supporting revalidation, setting imaging standards, developing guidelines and supporting research and audit.
Our Society welcomes membership from medical and non-medical specialists and generalists with a cardiac imaging interest and encourages membership from trainees as well as senior practitioners. The Society is represented by the Executive Committee and the Trainee Committee.
