      With the goal of optimizing patient care, standards for training in cardiac computed tomography have been developed collaboratively by the Canadian Association of Radiologists and the Canadian Cardiovascular Society. These standards apply to both radiologists and cardiologists.
      Dans l’intention d’optimiser les soins aux patients, l’Association canadienne des radiologistes et la Société canadienne de cardiologie ont préparé conjointement des normes de formation en tomodensitométrie cardiaque. Ces normes s’appliquent à la fois aux radiologistes et aux cardiologues.
