Dual Energy


Dual energy CT (DECT) is an emerging technology that has shown tremendous potential to enhance diagnosis & tissue characterization, resulting in improved patient care. The educational objective of this intensive, 1.5 day course is to provide a comprehensive, focused review of the major basic & advanced principles of DECT scanning in the evaluation, treatment, and management of acutely & chronically ill patients.

We will emphasize both the relevant technical considerations and clinical applications of DECT, as applied to the brain, head & neck, chest, abdomen & pelvis, vascular, and musculoskeletal systems. Didactic and interactive case-based lectures, as well as panel discussions and audience QA sessions, will highlight the pitfalls & challenges of implementing a clinical DECT program, along with tips for successful integration of DECT workflow into current care pathways & hospital practice.

Specific sessions related to protocoling, acquisition, post-processing, interpretation, and decision-support informatics tools will be featured. Live demonstrations of DECT post-processing “pearls & pitfalls” on dedicated workstations will enhance the participants learning experience.
