Dear attendee,

It is a great pleasure and privilege to announce the RSSA/GE Cardiac Imaging Course for 2023.

This hands-on, interactive teaching course is conducted by internationally renowned radiologists Dr Ramy Neemtallah, Dr Hildo Lamb, and local radiologists Prof Leonie Scholtz and Dr Andre du Plessis.

A teaching course of this nature is of particular importance to South African radiologists. Cardiac imaging is a complicated and demanding sub-specialty and is constantly evolving. Radiologists need deep understanding of anatomy, physiology, pathology and the requirements of referring cardiologists to truly add value.

The aim of this course is to teach an approach to Cardiac CT and MR imaging and discuss common pathologies and pitfalls. Didactic lectures will be followed by case review on individual computers followed by group discussion and shared learning.

The course will take place at the beautiful Radisson Blu Granger Bay, just next to the Waterfront in Cape Town as well as the Maslow Hotel in the heart of Sandton. Due to technical limitations with infrastructure, enrollment is limited to 100 participants for the CT Course and 50 participants for the MR Course.

On behalf of the RSSA we welcome Dr Ramy Neemtallah, Dr Hildo Lamb, Prof Leonie Scholtz and Dr Andre du Plessis for this very exciting course.

Kind regards,


Dr Paul Rischbieter
