Small Animal Computed Tomography

18 Nov 2019 - 22 Nov 2019 | Guilin, China

Overview

The purpose of this training program is familiarize participants with the basics of computed tomography so that they will feel comfortable prescribing, acquiring and interpreting basic CT studies. Upon completion of the course, participants will have a basic understanding of CT technology, knowledge of common CT acquisition techniques, proficiency in image viewing and manipulation using DICOM viewing software. In addition, participants will develop a systematic method for evaluating CT studies so that they will feel comfortable distinguishing normal from abnormal, determining the significance of common lesions, and developing a list of differential diagnoses. Material will be presented in lecture and discussion formats with a heavy emphasis on case-based learning and student-instructor interaction. Participants will be expected to review case material outside of classroom time to develop individual abilities. 

Language

All modules will be held in China, in English language with consecutive translation in Chinese.
