Robert C. Hannon, MD is Certified in Coronary CTA

As we hope you know by now, Salem Advanced CT Imaging has been a regional leader in Coronary CT Angiography (CCTA) for over four years now. While this amazing new technology has evolved, our radiologists and technologists have traveled the country to receive the most advanced training available. At present, we are closing in on 1,500 CCTA exams. The results for our patients continue to be spectacular.

This past month, Dr. Robert Hannon received of Certificate of Proficiency in Coronary CT Angiography from the American College of Radiology. This Certificate was awarded following an intensive 3-day course in Washington DC. Dr. Hannon has extensive experience in CCTA, having been involved in most of our CCTA cases to date. The additional training and certification by an independent body, however, is emblematic of Salem Advanced CT Imaging and Salem Radiology’s ongoing commitment to quality and excellence. We continue to understand and value one of the key cornerstones of a commitment to quality … that regardless of one’s level of expertise or experience or ‘how many times you have done it’, there are always opportunities for improvement. Receiving the latest training from national experts as well as having an opportunity to interact with peers from around the country is essential to ensuring the best possible results for our patients and their physicians.

We are also pleased to report that more and more insurance companies have turned the corner in terms of the value of CCTA. As of January 1, 2010, Anthem (BCBS of NH) began covering CCTA exams when clinically appropriate. Presently, Anthem, Medicare, Harvard Pilgrim and United are among the payers covering CCTA exams.
