Supported by an educational grant from: Bracco Diagnostics Inc.
Program Summary: Dr. Rybicki shares his protocols for optimal imaging of the coronary arteries while using the lowest possible radiation dose. He explains how to manage radiation dose while providing clinically useful images in pediatric and adult patients. He also addresses the use of iodinated contrast in renally compromised patients and how to time contrast dosing for patient safety and optimal 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.
