This course is designed for Radiographers and aims to give users a better understanding of the fundamental concepts of CT together with a brief history and new technologies overview. Both scan acquisition and reconstruction parameters are covered in detail. Siemens Healthineers dose technologies such as CARE Dose 4D and CARE kV will be explained to provide an understanding of their use in clinical context.
Acquisition parameters such as kV, mAs, rotation time and pitch will be covered and their impact on image quality and dose considered. Reconstruction methods including weighted filtered back projection and iterative techniques will be demonstrated. This course includes extensive hands-on practice allowing the principles covered to be demonstrated using our dedicated simulation software.
