BACKGROUND

Despite general consensus on the benefit to the patient of computed tomography when used for appropriate indications, concerns have been raised regarding the potential risk of CT radiation-induced cancer resulting from the exponential increase in the use of CT in medicine. Keeping radiation dose as low as reasonably achievable, consistent with the diagnostic task, remains the most important factor in reducing this potential risk.

OBJECTIVES

This course is aimed at providing practical approaches to reduce radiation dose in the use of CT in a real-world clinical setting. Moreover another purpose of this course is to help fill the gap between the educational needs of radiologists and currently available resources.

STRUCTURE

The course is structured in 3 e-learning modules:

MODULE 1. Radiation dose: overview and general technical strategies for its reduction

MODULE 2. Examination-specific dose-reduction techniques (CTA)

MODULE 3. Examination-specific dose-reduction techniques (perfusion CT, abdominal imaging) and future perspectives in radiation-dose reduction

The contents of each module are presented as:

  • Three 10-minute video-commented slideshows
  • One clinical case with clinical decision points
  • Further reading (for Italian radiologists only)

N. 3 ECMECs (Europe)
N. 4 CME credits (Italy)
