Conference Description: The rapid evolution of Multidetector CT (MDCT) has impacted all aspects of patient diagnosis from cardiac imaging to vascular imaging to hepatic imaging. The development of these new scanners requires a close look at all aspects of our CT programs ranging from our scan protocols to contrast-injection to the use of oral contrast. The new clinical applications require a better understanding of our scanners as the "room for error" has decreased with scanners routinely acquiring data sets in under 10 seconds. New applications have evolved from coronary CTA to virtual colonoscopy to dual energy imaging, to name a few. Classic applications like imaging the liver, kidneys, or pancreas have changed with the role of multiphase acquisition and post-processing techniques becoming more critical. This has been both a time of change and a time of excitement. This meeting will provide the attendee with an improved understanding of the role of MDCT today and will help them improve their practical skills and knowledge base. Whether it is designing new scan protocols or learning new skill sets, this meeting will be a catalyst for increasing your core competencies through a series of lectures and hands-on training over a four-day period. The goal of the meeting is to improve your ability to do the best studies possible for optimal patient care in your own practice. Objectives: After attending this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to: • Describe the current state-of-the-art of CT scanning today and its impact in clinical practice. • Define the role of post-processing techniques like MPR and 3D in clinical practice • Discuss the issues of radiation dose in CT and how to minimize dose exposure for your patients. • Identify the newest scan protocols including the optimal use of oral and IV contrast agents. • Recognize how to manage incidentalomas in the kidney, adrenal, and pancreas. • Define the role of Cardiac CT in practice today including study technique and optimal study design. • Apply your expertise in abdominal imaging including details of renal, liver, kidney and bowel imaging. • Summarize your knowledge in thoracic imaging including pulmonary embolism studies and HRCT. identify the role of CT in the acute abdomen. • Assess your knowledge of vascular imaging including the role of 3D imaging in these applications.
