Over the last decade, the technique of computed tomography (CT) has developed fast resulting in an improved diagnostic accuracy at a lower radiation dose. At the same time, the refined technical developments of CT require an improved knowledge from the radiologists and technologists for fully exploiting the CT scanners’ potential. The protocols of state-of the art CT scanners therefore need to be frequently optimized to improve patient safety and care.
The aim of the workshop is to discuss important aspects of abdominal CT imaging including radiation safety, protocol optimization, contrast media application, multi-energy CT as well as reporting of abdominal CT studies. The format of the workshop will include mainly formal lectures that have been assigned to expert colleagues, able to thoroughly discuss each topic. Each lecture permits enough time to allow the audience to “ask the experts” questions in a direct way. Moreover, an interactive discussion on controversial topics will be provided.
