Overview:
The rapid evolution of multidetector CT (MDCT) has impacted all aspects of patient diagnosis from cardiac imaging to vascular imaging to hepatic imaging. The development of these new scanners requires a close look at all aspects of our CT programs ranging from our scan protocols, to contrast injection to the use of oral contrast. The new clinical applications require a better understanding of our scanners as the “room for error” has decreased with scanners routinely acquiring datasets in under 10 seconds. New applications have evolved from coronary CTA to virtual colonoscopy to dual energy imaging, to name a few. Classic applications like imaging the liver, kidneys or pancreas have changed with the role of multi-phase acquisition and post processing techniques becoming more critical. This has been both a time of change and a time of excitement. This meeting will provide the attendee with an improved understanding of the role of MDCT today and will help them improve their practice skills and knowledge base. Whether it is designing new scan protocols or learning new skill sets, this meeting will be a catalyst for increasing your core competencies through a series of lectures and hands-on training over a three-day period.

Objectives:
• Comprehend the current state of the art of CT scanning today and its impact in clinical practice
• Define the role of post processing techniques like MPR and 3D imaging including Cinematic Rendering in clinical practice
• Discuss the issues of radiation dose in CT and how to minimize dose exposure for your patients
• Recognize how to manage incidentalomas in the kidney, adrenal, and pancreas
• Define the role of cardiac CT in practice today including scan technique and optimal study design
• Increase your knowledge of vascular imaging including the role of 3D imaging in these applications
• Optimize your CT scan protocols including the use of oral and IV contrast agents
• Increase your knowledge in abdominal imaging with special focus on renal, liver, kidney, and bowel imaging
• Recognize the role of CT in the evaluation of musculoskeletal pathology
• Identify the role of CT in imaging the spine
• Study the latest developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and their potential impact on your practice

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
