Course design and objectives
Dual Energy CT offers a wide variety of applications and solutions, in particular, enhancing diagnostic accuracy for pathology detection and delineation, as well as more comprehensive qualification of radiological findings. This technology also facilitates dose-reductions in terms of radiation and iodine load and creates greater flexibility in challenging scenarios by improving image quality and contrast. Furthermore, Dual Energy CT allows for several material selective and functional imaging techniques, as opposed to traditional CT.
This one-day classroom training for radiologists and technologists will provide you with profound knowledge and practical skills in using the diagnostic possibilities of Dual Energy CT in your daily clinical routine. While lead innovators in CT technology will introduce you to the physics and background of image acquisition, reconstruction and analysis, clinical presentations will be held by Christian Booz, MD for Dual Energy CT applications in the entire body for various oncologic, vascular and musculoskeletal indications.
