SGCR WIRES 2022
12 - 14 August 2022 | Raffles City Convention Centre | On-site Event
Staying abreast with imaging advances in AI, tomosynthesis and Titanium CEM
Date: Wednesday, 10th August 2022
Time: 06:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Venue: Zoom webinar
This workshop will be moderated by Dr. Lester Leong from Singapore General Hospital and will feature speakers from world-renowned institutions, such as the Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, Netherlands. In this workshop, you will get a radiologist's as well as physicist's perspective, on how AI is implemented to support radiologists in the clinical decision-making in their healthcare institutions. Dr. Ritse Mann will share how AI can help with reading DBT, whilst Dr. Marco Caballo will share his cutting-edge research experience with the use of radionomics in breast imaging. This workshop will also feature Dr. Daan Helingmann from Siemens Healthineers, who will share a scientific presentation on how AI can be used for interpreting FFDM and thereby reduce the workload on radiologists.
The workshop will further provide participants with the opportunity to join an interactive multimodality case-review session with Prof. Luis Pina, from Universidad de Pamplona, Spain. Cases will be loaded on a cloud-based simulator for the audience to view, interact and analyze the data sets live during the virtual workshop session.
Photon-counting CT Symposium
Experience a defining moment in computed tomography
Date: Friday, 12th August 2022
Time: 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM
Venue: Olivia Room, Raffles City Convention Centre
The introduction of Spiral CT in 1990, Multislice CT in 1998 and Dual Source CT in 2005 signified technological breakthroughs in medical imaging that in turn enabled new diagnostic applications and widened the clinical scope of computed tomography. These are considered as milestones in the history of CT that each hailed in a new era for this imaging modality.
With the photon-counting CT, Siemens Healthineers has developed a radically new technology for clinical routine. At its core is a new kind of detector that is substantially different from a standard energy integrating detector.
This lunch symposium will focus on how these photon-counting detectors have the potential to overcome the limitations of current CT detectors, by providing CT data at very high spatial resolution, without electronic noise, with improved contrast‐to‐noise ratio, at lower radiation dose, and with intrinsic spectral information.
Interventional Radiology Symposium
Introducing the new ARTIS Icono Ceiling
Date: Saturday, 13th August 2022
Time: 12:00 PM to 12:30 PM
Venue: Fairmount Boardroom, Raffles City Convention Centre
Join us as we unveil the newest member of our proven ARTIS icono family. We can't wait to show you the image quality, new flexibility, and precise image guidance the new ceiling-mounted angiography system offers - and give you a first-hand look at its capabilities in clinical settings.
