CT Colonography

Earn up to 21.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 13 SAM Credits

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.

Workstations: GE, Philips, Siemens, TeraRecon or Vital Images
