“Cone Beam CT imaging techniques significantly reduce the complexity by removing the need for ‘slip ring’ technology that is essential for traditional CT systems.” observes Dr. Yorkston.
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (PRWEB) April 28, 2020
RadSite™, a CMS-recognized accrediting agency promoting quality-based advanced diagnostic imaging, is offering a complimentary webinar called An Overview of Cone Beam CT Imaging. The session will take place on May 6, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. ET and will last approximately one hour. Click here to register.
Leading experts in quality imaging will discuss the latest in Cone Beam CT Imaging in the United States in the May 6th webinar. Thousands of systems are now being used for diagnostic and interventional imaging. The session will highlight the opportunities and challenges associated with Cone Beam CT systems, including the need for national quality and performance standards.
The session will be moderated by Eliot Siegel, M.D., RadSite Chair, Standards Committee, and will feature the following speakers:
-David Luick, Vice President, Tungsten Medical Network
-Jenna Roller, PA-C, Clinical Applications Specialist, CurveBeam
-John Yorkston, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist, Carestream Health Inc.
“It is interesting to compare the technology between a traditional CT system, where the patient must be moved through the fan beam of x-rays as it rotates around the patient multiple times, to a Cone Beam CT system, which uses a large-area detector to image an extended volume of the patient in a single rotation,” observes Dr. Yorkston. “Cone Beam CT imaging techniques significantly reduce the complexity by removing the need for ‘slip ring’ technology that is essential for traditional CT systems.”
“Cone Beam CT imaging has become a centerpiece for otolaryngology specialty care,” notes David Luick. “By allowing medical professionals to conveniently image fields of study covering the ears, nose, and throat, the provider can conveniently access a high resolution image at a lower dose that conventional CT exams. Cone Beam CT images can be used for both diagnosis and in the aid of treatment. A good example is image-guided sinus surgery.”
“Cone Beam CT systems are designed to capture three-dimensional weight-bearing and non-weight-bearing volumetric images of the body extremities,” adds Jenna Roller. “I will share with the webinar attendees some of the opportunities associated with Cone Beam CT systems, such as how it can support orthopedic practices and other specialty areas, along with some of the latest advancements.”
All three speakers serve on RadSite’s Cone Beam CT Standards Committee, which has been meeting for two years. RadSite anticipates the release of its new Cone Beam CT MIPPA Accreditation Program this summer, which features specialty standards for both dental and medical imaging providers.
