Virtual Symposium - May 8-10th, 2013
The UCSF Virtual Symposium on Radiation Safety in Computed Tomography is focused on defining the safe and appropriate use of CT for diagnostic imaging. The Symposium will open on May 8, 2013 and there will be three days of keynote addresses, pre-recorded course lectures and live chats. The Virtual Symposium also features many activities, including CT simulations and image and dose challenges that will allow exhibitors to demonstrate their capabilities for achieving dose optimization.
The curriculum will be offered to physicians, technologists, physicists, nurses,
medical students, patients, administrators, and individuals who want to understand the issues regarding CT
radiation dose. The course will be offered not only within the University of California, but also to a broad
national and international audience.
Structurally, virtual conferences are appealing since they offer an educational experience while cutting
travel costs for attendees. Separate halls at the conference will include live lectures, discussions on new
legislation and professional oversight surrounding radiation, discussions on radiation risk communication to
patients, discussions of dose registries, a system to upload site data and compare with normative distributions,
presentations by advocacy groups, virtual games simulating CT exams, and vendor rooms demonstrating different dose
The Symposium features course material that is valuable for all audiences: Physicists, CT Technologists, Radiologists, Lawyers, Government Regulators, Medical Residents, Nurses and more!
Registration is now open and will continue until the live dates in May. Join our Virtual Symposium Mailing List or Register Today!
