ISCT Launches Full 2017 CT Symposium CME Content Online

Today the ISCT is excited to announce that we’ve officially launched our first wave of new CME content: the full content from our 2017 CT symposium. CT education has always been a top priority for our organization, and for almost two decades we’ve worked tirelessly towards finding ways to make the latest CT innovations and industry knowledge readily available to members in all levels of the radiology department, not just around the country but around the globe.

For years now the ISCT has been offering CME On-Demand content in tandem with our traditional symposium, so people who weren’t able to make the trip to San Francisco this year for ISCT17 can still experience all the action, earn CME credits and grow their industry knowledge, all at their own pace in a way that’s most convenient for them.

Today we launched the first wave of content from ISCT17 on our brand new state-of-the-art Education On-Demand site, where enduring content from many of our recent symposia is available as a way for professionals across the radiology community to enhance their CT knowledge, stay up to date on the newest industry protocols and innovations, and earn CME credits.

This year’s symposium was our best yet, with a diverse list of hot radiology topics and a prestigious faculty lineup reflecting varied interests and experiences. Our ISCT 2017 Full Program contains over 300 discrete presentations spanning a variety of topics in the following three tracks:

•Cutting Edge Mini-Symposia (highlight advanced and cutting edge topics pertaining to CT technology and practice)

•CT Academy (sessions covering the fundamental topics of CT technology, techniques, and protocols)

View full CT Academy program

•Read Out with the Professor (case based studies based around a specific organ system or disease)

View full Read Out with the Professor program  

It’s a week’s worth of CT-specific content, all available for you to dive into at your own unique pace. You can take notes through our Education On-Demand platform, navigate easily through different talks, watch and re-watch the content you enjoy most, and download files associated with specific talks so you can walk through them as the speaker presents. Our Education On-Demand content gives members of the radiology community the opportunity to continue their educational growth on their own terms and at their own pace.

Highlighting RLI’s Breakthrough Leadership Course: Maximizing Your Influence & Impact

Highlighting RLI’s Breakthrough Leadership Course: Maximizing Your Influence & Impact

Last week our very own Geoff Rubin, MD, Radiologist from Duke Radiology, Board Member of ACR’s Radiology Leadership Institute, and President of ISCT, completed his very first Facebook Live video in which he shared some valuable tips on leadership in radiology. The video serves as a teaser for an online ACR course he’s helping organize titled RLI Breakthrough Leadership: Maximizing Your Influence and Impact.

The course, which is a 12-week online cohort-based program running from October through May, combines the best of live, virtual class sessions with self-paced weeks set aside for deep dives into supplemental content such as articles, case studies, and on-demand modules. Participants have the capability to devour content on their own time, take notes, frame questions, participate in discussion boards led by high-level faculty, and discuss their feedback in virtual class sessions for a high-impact learning experience.

The course will cover three over-arching session topics to help those in leadership roles, or who may plan to take on a larger leadership role, gain a fundamental understanding of their new responsibilities, how to manage communications within their department and with other departments as well, and how to effectively leverage their role for greater impact.

Over the 12 weeks attendees can expect to gain deeper insight as they learn the following skills in addition to several soft skills like interpersonal relationship building, how to support your team, conflict management, etc.:

·      How to enable engagement & efficiency in your practice and larger health systems

·      How to deal with radiology within the workflow of other departments

·      How to understand the role the legal department plays in the health system

·      How to lead from the “middle”

·      How to interpret financial statements

·      How to understand and manage costs

·      How to lead and influence other departments

·      How to use your seat effectively to influence positive change

RLI Breakthrough Leadership: Maximizing Your Influence and Impact, accredited for up to 18 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s), is an innovative virtual course that’s a “must attend” for anyone in the radiology world who is stepping into a leadership role or looking to enhance their current leadership skills. Each session is led by a team of experts who bring unique backgrounds and sets of experience to the table, guaranteeing an engaging, relevant, and incredibly valuable course.

Cutting Edge CT News From ISCT17

Cutting Edge CT News From ISCT17

Radiology is an ever-changing industry, and the world of CT is no exception. In order to be truly valuable to their practices, it is imperative that radiologists, technologists, medical physicists, and even practice administrators stay updated not only on current industry trends, but also what’s on the frontier for CT. Our program directors seek to help them accomplish this by pushing the boundaries each year, creating a line-up of cutting edge talks that encompass controversial topics facing CT, an overview of the newest innovations in radiology, as well as changes in technology and practice.

The quality and quantity of both our talks and faculty were better than ever this year, a fact reflected in the amount of coverage ISCT17 garnered on a national level. With over 310 innovative CT-specific talks on the schedule for ISCT17, it was almost impossible to select which ones to attend. We covered a wide variety of topics across our three tracks, each largely appealing in their own unique way, but there were a few topics of emphasis at ISCT17 that were particularly relevant to the radiology community on a national and global level.

Remotely Attend The ISCT's 19th Annual CT Symposium In Your Home Timezone

Remotely Attend The ISCT's 19th Annual CT Symposium In Your Home Timezone

Our 19th Annual International Symposium on CT, which kicks off in San Francisco on Sunday, June 4th, is shaping up to be our best yet. With over 300 incredible and innovative CT-specific topics delivered by a faculty lineup boasting some of the biggest names in radiology, ISCT17 is the pinnacle of all things CT and a can’t miss event for anyone looking to further their industry knowledge and career growth.

Many of our domestic attendees, particularly those who hail from California, are fortunate enough to be able to attend our 2017 CT symposium in person. For many of our international peers, however, in-person attendance simply isn’t feasible. Radiology is a global industry, and placing emphasis on international collaboration in CT has always been a main staple of ISCT’s mission. That’s why this year we’re working harder than ever to make our symposium, and all of its CME content, accessible to our industry peers worldwide.

This year we’ve developed three comprehensive Live Stream bundle options for our industry peers who want to be a part of ISCT17 and are looking to continue their educational growth, but can’t make it to San Francisco in person.
