Due to rapid advances in technology, radiologists and radiologic technologists often require a comprehensive review of recent advances in computed body tomography. This activity will focus on multidetector/multislice CT and newer systems including dual-source CT scanners. The schedule offers a series of 40-minute lectures designed to concentrate on specific topics in-depth, including state-of-the-art technology and software.
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.
Although the first head CTs were done nearly 40 years ago, CT continues to evolve and currently is probably the strongest imaging technique in our diagnostic armamentarium. This CME activity provides a series of critically designed lectures that explore many of the key concepts in CT today.
