المدرسة الصيفية للجمعية الأمريكية للفيزيائيين في الطب هذه السنة ستكون عن التصوير الطبي بالأشعة المؤينة: أمثلة الجرعة و جودة الصور. من الفترة ٢٤ إلى ٢٩ يونيو ٢٠١٢م في جامعة كاليفورنيا – سان دييقو.
Who Should Attend?
Any medical physicist who uses imaging technology as part of their practice.
Whether you are new to the use of diagnostic cone-beam CT in the neurovascular lab, or new to the use of cone-beam CT as part of your radiation therapy treatment planning and delivery verification processes, you need to know about new imaging technologies.
- How will they benefit your practice?
- How will they integrate with existing imaging capabilities and information technology infrastructure?
- What do you need to know to bring these technologies into your practice and adequately test and turn them over for clinical use?
Join our faculty of experts in beautiful San Diego to learn the answer to these questions and more. Particular focus will be given on how to maximize the benefit to risk ratio associated with the use of medical imaging.
Additionally, two Self Assessment Modules (SAMs) will be included in Wednesday’s program (no extra fee).
Medical imaging using ionizing radiation is coming under intense scrutiny from public, professional, and regulatory groups, who all share a common goal of ensuring patient benefit while minimizing patient risk. Continuing education in new and evolving imaging technology, as well as methods to increase benefit while decreasing risk, are therefore important aspects of the medical physicist’s roles and responsibilities. This course will provide up-to-date and clinically relevant education regarding:
- safe uses of constantly evolving imaging technologies,
- best methods to test image quality and dose performance, and
- changes in technology and how they affect regulatory / accreditation requirements.
