We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

This course provides the student with broad fundamental knowledge about underlying principles, the equipment, associated terminology, and a description of important image properties of computed tomography scanning. The study of the operation of the CT scanner components, computer components, scanning factors, and the applications of these factors to clinical procedures will be explored. Evaluation of CT image quality, identification of artifacts, artifact reduction, quality control, radiation dose, and dose reduction will be addressed. The course will present basic applications and procedures exercised for computed tomography examination of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, spine, and the musculoskeletal system as well as basic anatomy for CT canning.  Patient care, venipuncture techniques, aseptic technique, contrast media, contrast media reactions, special procedures, and pediatric considerations will be explored. Scanning acquisition methods inclusive of helical/spiral, high resolution, conventional, electron beam scanning and multi-slice will be examined. Radiation safety and drug pharmacology relevant to computed tomography will be discussed.
