Session Highlight: Pediatric Imaging At ISCT 2019

ISCT 2019 is less than one month away, and our 21st annual international CT conference is shaping up to be one of the most impactful yet. The faculty are talented, the program is rich and multifaceted, and the venue is beautiful. This year we’re putting an emphasis on 5 CT subspecialty areas of interest, with one session devoted to each of our primary subspecialties: chest, neuro, cardiovascular, skeletal, and abdominal. Additional sessions dedicated to pediatric imaging, CT technologies, and workflow/reporting round out the 2019 program, providing a comprehensive update on every aspect of CT interest. 

We’re excited for all of this year’s sessions, but want to shine a special spotlight on one of particular interest for many attendees: our pediatric session. Pediatric imaging is a huge focus in the radiology world right now, with initiatives like the Image Wisely campaign and others drawing attention to pediatric imaging guidelines, dose optimization, and the avoidance of unnecessary imaging procedures.
