Course Overview

This training programme is designed for those who have access to computed tomography in their daily practice and wish to be able to prescribe, acquire and interpret routine CT studies.

The objectives of the program are to provide participants a basic understanding of the technology involved in modern CT units, knowledge of common CT acquisition techniques, proficiency in image viewing and manipulation using DICOM viewing software, and a logical approach to CT image interpretation, including detection of pertinent signs, and generation of a prioritized differential diagnosis. The program is based on combination of lectures, clinical case studies in small group, and interactive teaching to stimulate an active learning process. The aim of the programme is to give participants enough knowledge and ability in CT image interpretation to achieve independence in common clinical situations and to facilitate their collaboration with European specialists in the fields.
