- To learn about the diagnostic performance of CCTA in multi center trials
- To identify how the positive predictive value of CCTA may be improved through the use of CT-derived fractional flow reserve measurements and CT measurement of myocardial perfusion
Global Learning Objectives
- Review the development history of echocardiography practice and research at Duke
- Summarize the evidence from guideline documents supporting current practice and define some "evidence gaps" in echocardiography-guided therapy.
- Describe, using case examples, the capacity of available reporting systems to serve as a "learning health system" to inform future cardiovascular practice.
