- : Online
The perfect introduction to computed tomography in the acute clinical setting.Designed in a systematic learning format, the course covers acquisition, normal variations, patterns of disease & pitfalls in CT imaging of the head, chest, abdomen, pelvis, cervical & thoracolumbar spine. Each module is composed of a didactic lecture followed by an interactive session where participants review CT cases on PACS alone or in pairs to reinforce fundamental learning objectives. Our goal is to provide practitioners with the knowledge and confidence to interpret CT findings in commonly encountered acute clinical settings. All lectures are presented by radiologists, specialists in the field of medical imaging.
