What is Level 1?

Level 1 is "how it works" and not "how to do".

Level 1 is the level of knowledge needed to know what a modality does and what it is used for.

Each course comprises recorded lectures by renowned experts, including at least one clinical case, and MCQs.

A Level 1 certificate will be given after completion of the course.

Who should start with Level 1?

This programme has been designed to cover the needs of a broad audience:

  • Anyone needing basic knowledge of imaging modalities
  • General cardiologists (university and private practice)
  • Non-cardiologists and allied professionals (GPs, nurses, technicians, etc.)
  • For imagers, it can be a first step before level 2 on techniques outside their specialty


Price per module and purchase links
