Back By Popular Demand: Low Dose CT Symposium Set for March 12, 2011

The Low Dose CT Symposium is a repeat session of the October 10, 2010 symposium which drew close to 150 people and was greatly received! It will be an excellent opportunity to gain understanding of the current thinking about how to lower dose in CT scanning without compromising the diagnostic power of CT. Radiologists, physicists, and senior technologists are combining their knowledge and experience in multiple 20-minute talks about Low Dose CT technique, covering all aspects of protocols, technique, and ordering appropriateness for use of CT.

The half-day symposium is taking place March 12, 2011, in Seattle at the University of Washington Health Sciences’ Turner Auditorium, D-209.  The symposium is available for a maximum of 3.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Registration is required to attend.

  1. We are happy to announce we are able to offer 3.5 Category A CE credits to technologists for a charge of $25 by cash or check at the door.

  2. I’m trying to register but for some reason I can’t open the website.
    I will keep trying…but please count me in.
    Also, is there any CE credits with this Symposium.
