CT Colonography

Earn up to 20.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 13 SAM Credits.

NOTE: The American Board of Radiology (ABR) is eliminating the requirement for diplomates completing Online Longitudinal Assessment (OLA) to complete self-assessment CME (SA-CME/SAMs) on December 31, 2022. With this change, the ACR will no longer offer SAMs for Education Center courses (live, in-person and micro-courses) beginning January 1, 2023.

CT Colonography (CTC) is an evolving technique with considerable potential for widespread screening of colorectal cancer. Application of appropriate techniques and knowledge of correct interpretation skills are vital to successfully implementing this technique.

The goal of this two-day course is to educate attendees in the technique, performance and interpretation of CTC through the supervised review of a minimum of 50 cases. The course will also provide a forum for discussing research initiatives, regulatory issues and the reimbursement environment.

What Your Colleagues Are Saying


– Best value for money in radiology education today.

– One of the best ACR visiting fellowships.

– This is my first time here, and I will definitely come back. The course is very well organized with didactic and case-based format with readily available faculty and vendor supervision. Very effective. Probably the best professional educational session I’ve ever had.
