"This course was simply outstanding. Dr. DeFrance was personally present throughout the entire course and reviewed each case with us in great detail. By frequent review and repetition, he was able to teach to us his detail oriented, practical, and systematic approach to case review.
Undoubtedly, I will adopt his method of reading cases in my own practice. Having already been to other introductory courses on CTA interpretation, I can state that his course was 'hands down' the best by far."
-Dr. Thomas W. Pappas, Cardiologist, Manhasset, NY
“Dr. DeFrance’s systematic approach to the interpretation of the data set leaves you confident in your ability to interpret these studies in a relatively short period of time.”
-Dr. Mason Weiss, Cardiologist, Los Angeles, CA
“The course was excellent – very thorough. Dr. DeFrance is a great teacher!”
-Dr. Yunus Moosa, Cardiologist, Tulsa, OK
"Excellent course design and execution. Dr. DeFrance keeps his audience fully engaged. Interactive component is extremely well done. Highly recommended for both cardiologists and radiologists."
-Dr. Mark L. Winkler, Radiologist
“This course was my first foray into CVCTA. I found the material stimulating, the pace appropriate, and the exposure to TeraRecon invaluable. The cath correlation helped to corroborate one’s interpretation from the CT data set. The small class size fostered a collegial atmosphere. Most importantly, for me, being the only radiologist, I found both Dr. DeFrance and the other classmates to be a tremendous source of information when it came to clinical correlation.”
-Dr. Rich Satre, Radiologist, Medical Director Radia Medical Imaging, Seattle, WA
“Great curriculum. Hands-on training a MUST. This course is the best kept secret in the Bay Area!”
-Dr. Felix Lee, Cardiologist, Los Gatos, CA
“I appreciated the informal nature of the course.”
-Dr. Warren Toews, Cardiologist, Spokane, WA
“Great conference- the instructors and the entire experience were great – probably the best conference I’ve attended.”
-Dr. Romeo Pavlic, Cardiologist, Spokane, WA
“Excellent case based course with a small interactive group that allows integration of clinical cases with work station training.”
-Dr. Ali Homayuni, Cardiologist, New York, NY
“Probably the best course I have attended. Really.”
-Dr. Asim Nisar, Cardiologist, Elgin, IL
"I have been to 3 CT courses and the course at the CVCTA center in San Francisco with Dr. Defrance is the best. His approach provides in-depth CTA experience in addition to the basics of work station functionality, which is so hard to learn initially without being walked through the process step-by-step.
The carefully planned cases and cath correlation are also so valuable and much better organized than the previous courses I have attended. Thank you, I really feel comfortable with reading and having a solid reading method after completing the course."
-Dr. Robert Phillips, Cardiologist, Bellingham, WA
“Great course. Would not change anything.”
-Dr. Jack Farahi, Cardiologist, Los Angeles, CA
