Session Objectives

1. Explain the indications, risks, and benefits of invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in cardiovascular disease

2. Discuss the basics of radiation physics, radiation safety, radiologic cardiovascular anatomy, and clinical cardiovascular


3. Interpret the data obtained from invasive procedures to select medical, catheter-based, or surgical treatment

4. Describe the mechanics and incorporate invasive diagnostic procedures and techniques discussed
