AANMS Cross-Sectional Anatomy Course

In 2006, as part of its Quality Nuclear Medicine Program, and with the assistance of the Australian Department of Health and Ageing, the AANMS developed a cross-sectional anatomy (CSA) course for nuclear medicine physicians and trainees.

While the Course focuses on CSA relevant to nuclear medicine, an increasing number of other specialists and trainees (e.g. radiology trainees, radiation oncologists, rheumatologists) have found it very helpful for their practice, and are very welcome to attend, subject to limits on numbers as noted below.

The CSA Course has been run every two years over three days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) in Melbourne; the last Course was run in 2019.

To ensure maximum benefit to participants, the number of attendees is limited, and AANMS members and nuclear medicine physician trainees (for whom the CSA Course is now a required training component) have first priority for registration.

Please note that this Course is suitable for medical consultants and medical trainees only.

For further information, please see the 2019 Course Aims and Objectives (pdf) or contact the AANMS Secretariat.

ANZBMS Clinical Densitometry Courses

The Australian Bone and Mineral Society runs two-day Clinical Densitometry Training Courses each year that are approved for nuclear medicine advanced trainees needing to complete their BMD training requirements.

The Courses are also recommended for nuclear medicine specialists.

The next Course will be run in Adelaide on 17-18 October, 2020.

Please see the ANZBMS website for further information.

Training in CT Coronary Angiography (CTCA)

Update:  Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Conjoint Committee for Credentialling for CTCA has decided to extend the recertification dates for all specialists recertifying between 16 March and 31 December 2020.  Enquiries should be directed to the Committee Secretariat at ctca@ranzcr.edu.au

Specialists wishing to undertake training in CTCA should check the requirements for training set by the Conjoint Committee for Recognition of Training in CT Coronary Angiography. This committee is a conjoint committee of the AANMS, the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ) and the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR).

Information about the training requirements for CTCA, and application forms for recognition of training, are available from the Conjoint Committee’s website at anzctca.org.au. Please check to ensure that any training you plan to undertake will meet the requirements for CTCA.

In particular, it is strongly recommended that you check the Conjoint Committee’s guidelines for minimum requirements for courses in CTCA; the guidelines are available at: anzctca.org.au/ctca-courses.
