MEETING DESCRIPTION:
CT colonography (CTC) is an evolving technique with considerable potential for widespread screening of colorectal cancer. Application of appropriate techniques and knowledge of correct interpretation skills are vital to successfully implementing this technique. This two day course’s goal is to educate attendees in the technique, performance, and interpretation of CTC through the supervised review of a minimum of 50 sample cases. The course will also provide a forum for discussing research initiatives, regulatory issues, and the reimbursement environment.

At the conclusion of this conference, participants will be able to:

1. Recognize the techniques necessary to acquire diagnostic CTC images, including patient preparation, scanning parameters, and display/navigational methods

2. Review interpretation methods and how to avoid pitfalls

3. Discuss current research initiatives, regulatory issues, and reimbursement environment

4. Acquire the proficiency necessary to interpret and report CTC studies through supervised review of a minimum of 50 cases

Attendees who complete a minimum of 50 cases will be awarded a Certificate of Proficiency stating they meet the case requirement as specified in the ACR Practice Guideline for the Performance of Computed Tomography Colonography in Adults.
