As we plan for ISCT 2019, we can’t help but take a moment to reflect on years past. Every year for the past 21 years we have been thrilled to see how our symposium continues to evolve. From the caliber of faculty presenting to the scope and breadth of topics covered, year after year the ISCT symposium grows and changes. For a symposium focused on computed tomography, though, that shouldn’t be too surprising.Read More
Jointly presented by medical physicists and radiologists, this session focuses on current trends in radiation dose across the U.S. and methods for monitoring and tracking radiation dose. A variety of specific tools for dose mitigation will be discussed along with the challenge of balancing diagnostic quality against dose reduction across a variety of CT applications and patient types.Read More
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.Read More
