30 for 30 computed tomography sessions

We are officially 30 days out from our 18th Annual Computed Tomography Symposium in San Francisco and it’s safe to say we are getting a little excited. All the pieces are falling into place and our registration is higher than it’s ever been. We are building an amazing program for you and are looking forward to this CT meeting to be the most innovative gathering of radiology minds we have ever hosted.
