Everything you need to know about Computed Tomography (CT)

Ask the Fish

CT is one of the critical imaging modalities available today that is a driving force in patient diagnosis and management. CT has been shown in numerous studies to impact positively the ability to detect disease, determine its etiology and guide management. Both positive and negative studies play a major role in patient management and care. This CME program addresses the current state of the art in Body CT.

This program consists of 30 selected topics in Body CT and each are presented by an expert in the field. Each lecture focuses on topics ranging from scan protocols to study design to study interpretation. Topics covered range from the chest to the heart to the liver and the colon.

In each of the talks which are in the 40-45 minute range we provide key imaging features that allow us to make the best possible diagnoses. Lectures focus on pitfalls and potential sources of error. Technical aspects of the exam including the importance of CT dose reduction are included as well.

After reviewing the series of talks included in this series the Radiologist or the Radiologic Technologist will have increased knowledge and this should help them provide better patient care. We hope you enjoy these talks and look forward to any comments or suggestions.
