CT spectral course

The training is aimed at existing and future users of spectral CT who want to learn or refresh the basics and/or receive more advanced spectral CT training. Day one covers the basics, and day two will cover more advanced spectral CT. Participants will learn how to access and interpret the spectral information. Case readings will be in a hands-on fashion allowing participants to master interpretation for routine and practical clinical use. Clinical efficacy and advantages of spectral information will be demonstrated using clinical case examples from various global IQon Spectral sites. Philips Spectral CT is a disruptive new technology that allows spectral information in all patients and empowers users to utilize this technology routinely in their daily CT examinations.
