About ISCT's Education On-Demand

Last year we launched our state-of-the-art Education On-Demand site, where enduring content from our previous symposia is packaged and available for purchase as a way for members at all levels of the radiology community to enhance their CT knowledge, stay up to date on the newest industry protocols and innovations, and earn CME credits. Here's a little bit more about ISCT's Education On-Demand, and how you can use content from last year to prepare for ISCT 2018:

From accepting referrals to image patients to imaging, reporting, and informed decision making from CT scanning, the delivery of CT services and interpretations is a complex endeavor involving a diverse team of radiologists, technologists, and administrators. Pressured by declining reimbursements, radiology practices and departments are consistently challenged to assure that internal resources are applied as effectively and efficiently as is possible.

Radiology CME Course Highlight: “Cases I’d Like To Do Over”

CME course spotlight of the week: “Cases I’d Like To Do Over”. Blending experience from all four major CT manufacturers and diverse CT exam types, four radiologist-technologist teams each present a one-hour session on cases that did not come out as desired. Analysis seeks root causes for the shortfalls, providing a structured and comprehensive assessment of the original exam request, pre-procedural communications and protocol section, patient preparation, patient characteristics at the time of the CT scan, the CT procedure and post-procedural management, image analysis, and interpretation of what went wrong and how to implement change to assure that the issue does not recur in the future.

ISCT17 Live Streaming Options Now Available

We couldn’t be more excited about ISCT17, and we’ve got tons of exciting events planned for our attendees. That being said, we understand that not everyone will be able to join us in person this June. Radiology can be an incredibly demanding industry, and many of us are trying to balance work, academia, and personal lives. Continued education is key to staying relevant in our industry, but you won’t always have the flexibility to drop everything, hop on a plane and head to a conference in person, no matter how valuable it is.

We understand that, and that’s why we’re placing an emphasis on creating an outstanding virtual experience for those of you who are seeking professional growth and desperately want to be a part of ISCT17 but simply can’t make the trip in person.

We’ve created three unique ways to view our most exciting symposium content, all from the comfort of your own home. Earn accreditation, experience the most exciting moments live from ISCT17, and access your favorite lectures long after the symposium has ended!
