About This CME Teaching Activity
This CME activity is a practical, yet clinically relevant review of CT imaging with an emphasis on the latest technological advances. Tips, techniques, and expanded clinical applications are highlighted throughout the program. Topics include body, chest, cardiac and neurological imaging applications. Modern radiation dose reduction technology and imaging strategies are discussed so that viewers can apply the benefits to their own clinical practice. When appropriate, comparisons are 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
Educational Objectives
