pre-symposium workshop on dual energy ct

In addition to the comprehensive three-day CT symposium offered by the ISCT, this year we’ll also be offering a pre-conference workshop on dual energy and multi-spectral techniques.  This full-day program will offer attendees a unique opportunity to explore the details of this new method for tissue characterization and reduction of both radiation and iodine exposure. Lead by Dushyant V. Sahani, MD; our expert faculty members from top radiology institutions across the globe will present cases and lead workshop attendees to compare the implementation methods, processing/display techniques, interpretation and application of dual energy.

Workshop attendees will have the opportunity to discuss Dual Energy Computed Tomography (DECT) Technology and Workflow, Body and Vascular cases.  For the first part of the day, attendees will explore DECT technology and workflow led by GE Healthcare, Siemens Medical Solutions, Phillips Healthcare, Toshiba Medical Systems. They will also focus on multi-energy CT practices and the technologists’ perspectives. 

By the middle of the day, we will shift focus to DECT Body case based reviews focusing in the following areas:

  • Quantitation (HU and Iodine)
  • Artifact Reduction
  • Body – Liver and Bile Ducts
  • Body – Pancreas Masses and Pancreatitis
  • Body – Renal and Adrenal Pathologies
  • Body – GI Tract Pathologies
  • MSK Applications
  • Lung Masses

There will also be workshop sessions discussing the need for DECT in ER scenarios and a section on Vascular Cases, specifically in Neuro Vascular, Pulmonary Vascular (PE), Cardiac and Low Iodine Dose CTA cases.

This workshop is filling up quickly with many of our attendees taking advantage of the opportunity to take a deep dive into one of radiology’s hottest topics. With the chance to be a part of leading discussions on computed tomography imaging protocols, clinical experts can share insights, review case studies and discuss every day practices to implement back at their radiology departments.

The Dual Energy & Multi-Spectral Techniques Workshop does require separate registration apart from the 18thAnnual Symposium on Computed Tomography, which can be found here. If you have any questions about the program and are trying to determine if this is the right workshop for your team, feel free to reach out to the ISCT.
