"Passing the CoAP exam is an important way to demonstrate your subspecialty expertise to your patients, clinical colleagues and credentialing boards. It shows you have the specialized skills in cardiac CT that help to ensure studies will be performed and interpreted safely and with the highest quality standards. Be a leader in your field – take the CoAP!"

"With the Certificate of Advanced Proficiency, the ACR shows its commitment to supporting our specialty. Become certified, prove your high degree of competence in cardiac CT, and do your part to demonstrate your commitment to our specialty as well."
Jacobo Kirsch,

“If you perform cardiac CT, there’s no better way to demonstrate your knowledge and competence than with the ACR CoAP.  Since it’s now available at testing centers throughout the United States, taking the test can now fit into the busiest of schedules.”
