Course design and objectives
2-day course at the headquarters of Siemens Healthineers, Computed Tomography in Forchheim, Germany. Participants will gain insight into the various state of-the-art technologies and algorithms that Siemens Healthineers has implemented to manage patient dose. Topics such as CARE Dose4D, X-CARE, CARE kV, Turbo Flash scanning and iterative reconstruction techniques (e.g. SAFIRE, ADMIRE) will be discussed in detail. Additionally, dose considerations for Dual Energy applications are outlined. Learn how to perform the necessary quality controls and receive valuable tips and tricks.
Also included is a CT and detector factory tour, to experience first-hand how our CT systems are manufactured and an insight on current and future developments such as Artificial Intelligence and Photon Counting.
Siemens Healthineers experts from the physics department will guide you through the course while combining lectures with interactive discussions.
