About The Meeting
This course is designed to deliver a practical, yet clinically relevant review of CT imaging while emphasizing the latest technological advances. Tips, techniques, and expanded clinical applications will be highlighted throughout the program. Protocol optimization, oncological applications and lung cancer screen will be addressed. When appropriate, comparisons will be made with other modalities.

Target Audience
This CME activity is designed to educate diagnostic imaging physicians who supervise and interpret CT studies. This CME activity should also be useful to referring physicians who order these studies so that they might gain a greater appreciation of the strengths and limitations of clinically relevant CT studies. Technologists performing CT examinations should also benefit from this course.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Discuss the role of CT and CTA in the evaluation of kidney and liver disease.
  • Describe the expanding role of CT in the diagnosis of gastrointestinal pathology.
  • Optimize pulmonary and cardiac scanning techniques and protocols.
  • Differentiate suspicious from benign lung nodules.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.

Course Organization
This program is planned and organized by Educational Symposia, a leader in continuing medical education since 1975.

Educational Symposia appreciates our corporate supporters and exhibitors. A list of industry supporters will be provided and acknowledged at the meeting.
