About This CME Teaching Activity
This activity is structured to provide a comprehensive review of computed tomography. Tips, techniques, protocols, recent technical enhancements and radiation safety are emphasized throughout the program. A balance of neuro, abdominal, and cardiovascular topics are presented to help you expand your clinical practice.
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.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Discuss the utility of CT and CTA in the diagnosis and evaluation of abdominal, neurological, cardiac and thoracic abnormalities.
  • Optimize CT and CTA imaging protocols.
  • More effectively utilize CT angiography in clinical practice.
  • Evaluate abdominal pathology more efficiently utilizing multi-slice CT.
  • Utilize recent technological developments to design protocols that decrease radiation dose while enhancing image quality.
