Advanced CT Protocols of the Aorta
This course is expired. It can no longer be taken for credit.This program presents an overview of CT imaging of the aorta, including details on understanding the differences between helical versus axial CT runoffs, best practices in contrast injection, and how to avoid common imaging mistakes. Dr. Steigner shares many of his protocols for optimal imaging of abdominal aortic aneurysms and gated thoracic aorta imaging.
This program was originally broadcast live as part of a Webinar series sponsored by Applied Radiology, supported with an educational grant from Bracco Diagnostics Inc.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Understand the differences between helical versus axial CT runoffs;
- Understand appropriate use of iodinated contrast injection, including common pitfalls; and
- Know how to avoid imaging problems, especially, inadequate distal contrast opacification.
