Many things have changed about our annual CT symposium over the years, but the one thing that’s remained consistent is the caliber of our faculty for the event. We have been incredibly privileged over the years to have an extensive faculty of the top imaging experts who have helped us to establish our symposium as one of the most innovative computed tomography meetings in the world. Our faculty come from all corners of the globe, and are members of the world’s leading institutions. Many are pioneers within the CT community, and their unique and varied experiences make for content that is rich, thoughtful, and tactical.
Every year we’re excited to welcome new faculty into our ranks, and to note the return of our most highly regarded faculty from previous symposia! This year we’re excited to announce our first four confirmed faculty for ISCT 2018. All four have spoken in previous years, and they’re some of our most wildly popular faculty among attendees.
Cynthia is one of the leading minds in CT research, serving as the director of Mayo Clinic’s CT Clinical Innovation Center, where she leads a team of physicians, scientists, and research trainees to find better ways to detect and quantify diseases using computed tomography. As a professor of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, Dr. McCollough’s expertise spans topics related to quantitative assessment of material composition, disease progression/regression, and organ function to radiation dose optimization.
Dr. Sahani is an Associate Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School, and Director of Computed Tomography at Massachusetts General Hospital, in Boston, Massachusetts. Imaging of the liver, biliary and pancreas has been the focus of his research and clinical work. He is currently involved in investigating tumor angiogenesis and response to novel cancer treatment methods with CT, MRI and PET. Dr. Sahani has been involved with the ISCT computed tomography meeting since 2007, and we are excited and fortunate in having him play a major role at our meeting.
Cristy is the CT Quality Assurance Manager at Massachusetts General Hospital, and has been an active faculty member of our annual symposium for several years now. Last year she served as a Program Director for our CT Academy track, moderating and presenting a number of talks curated specifically for technologists.
Joe Schoepf is a Professor with appointments in Radiology, Medicine, and Pediatrics at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston, SC. At MUSC Dr. Schoepf serves as director of the Division of Cardiovascular Imaging, of CT Research and Development, and as Cardiovascular Imaging Director of the University Designated Center for Biomedical Imaging. His main clinical and scientific interest is non-invasive cardiovascular and thoracic imaging, especially the use of advanced CT and MRI techniques for diagnosing disorders of the heart and lung.
If you’ve been to our symposium in the past and have gotten a chance to see these wonderful men and women in action, you’ll know just how valuable and tactical their presentations are for members of all aspects of your radiology department. Each one has a unique background, a specific focus that allows them to give insight on some of the most important aspects of CT technology, protocols, and research. You won’t want to miss them this year at ISCT 2018! Stay tuned for more speaker announcements as we continue to confirm our 2018 faculty, and don’t forget to secure your spot for ISCT 2018!
