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
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should 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.
  • Review the risks of radiation dose and apply modern dose reduction protocols and imaging techniques to clinical practice.
  • Utilize CT and CTA to evaluate the cerebrovascular system.
