Refresher Courses are recorded courses captured at past RSNA Annual Meetings. Most courses include an audio-visual presentation, as well as a corresponding transcript. The online Refresher Courses are free to members.
Content Areas :
Conference Objectives are :
• Compare advantages and disadvantages of various techniques to reduce radiation dose for abdominal CT.
• Describe how iterative reconstruction techniques work and how they can improve the image quality of low dose exams.
• Develop a strategy to implement low dose techniques in clinical practice.
• Summarize the current status with respect to iodinated contrast medium-induced acute kidney injury.
• Describe key concepts with respect to management of moderate and severe acute reactions to iodinated contrast medium.
• Describe key concepts with respect to reducing the volume of injected contrast for CT exams.
• Discuss the basic principles and different approaches for Dual-Energy CT.
• Review common Dual-Energy CT post-processing displays.
• Describe strategies for implementing Dual-Energy CT in clinical practice.
• Define established size-related oncologic response criteria used in CT.
• Discuss the application of volumetric assessment of tumor burden at diagnosis and in assessing response to therapy.
• Describe selected examples of response assessment criteria looking at other tumors imaging characteristics such as tumor attenuation or enhancement in addition to size.
• Review CT tumor texture analysis as an additional tool to evaluate tumor heterogeneity at baseline and during therapy.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
