In 2015, the CAMRT partnered with Neovation / Smarter U, a learning solutions company, to transition our quick self-studies to an interactive online learning management platform. We currently have a few quick self-studies available and others will follow as they are transitioned over the next few years.

This is one option for the CT Imaging Certificate’s required Supplement.

In the era of multi-detector, multi-slice, ultra-fast CT units, Cardiac CT now plays a central role in multi-modality imaging of heart disease in conjunction with echocardiography, coronary catheterization, nuclear medicine and MRI. As lower radiation doses are routine, it is also a vital screening tool in the diagnosis and prevention of heart disease. This Quick Self Study is a practical learning module for the advanced procedure of Cardiac CT. Discussed in detail are; situations when cardiac CT is the test of choice and why, understanding the complex 3D anatomy of the heart, reconstruction and imaging planes, and optimizing patient preparation and imaging protocols to competently perform Cardiac CT.


PET/CT Guided Interventions

pet-ct-guided-interventions-qssThis QSS introduces the learner to alternative uses of this hybrid technology for PET/CT guided biopsies and PET/CT guided radiation therapy. The benefits, limitations and challenges of each intervention are explored, case studies are presented to demonstrate clinical relevance, and the impact on patient treatment and care is discussed. The QSS concludes with a brief discussion of potential use of PET/CT-guided interventions in the future. This course is appropriate for any healthcare professional looking to expand their knowledge in innovative applications of hybrid modalities.


Life Cycle of the Breast

Providing FeedbackThis quick self-study course provides an exploration of the female breast and the developmental and functional changes that occur with the breasts over the course of a lifetime, through infancy, puberty, the childbearing years, the menopausal years, and old age. There is focus on the hormonal influences within the body, as well as artificial hormones, and how they influence breast development, function and atrophy, over the lifetime of a woman.


Stroke and CT Perfusion

Stroke and CT Perfusion

This is one option for the CT Imaging Certificate’s required Supplement.

Stroke is a serious health issue that affects thousands of Canadians and is the second leading cause of death in the world.

Thanks to advances in diagnosis and treatments, survival rates for stroke patients over the past decade have significantly improved. Since the decision to treat stroke is largely influenced on the basis of imaging, this quick self-study will focus on the role of CT in acute stroke.

This course will include a discussion on types of stroke, recognizing them on non-enhanced CT, the role of CT angiography and an explanation of CT perfusion. The role of CT perfusion for indications outside of acute stroke will also be explored.
