We would like to invite you to the Virtual Colonoscopy Course for radiologists. In this three-day hands-on workshop, 50 CTC cases will be studied under the guidance of expert radiologists. Each case will be analyzed by the course attendees using advanced image processing software, followed by a plenary case assessment by the faculty, based on full surgery and pathology reports.
Several lectures, given in a multidisciplinary setting by local clinical experts, will focus on guidelines and practical handling of the scan and imaging technique, bowel preparation, clinical impact, radiation dose considerations etc. After this course, the attendee should be able to introduce, perform and analyze CTC in his or her department.
This course is organized together with Philips Healthcare. The image processing workstation will be the Philips CT IntelliSpace Portal, including automatic polyp detection and electronic cleansing. Despite the Philips preferred layout and workflow, your own settings and way of working can be used during the course. Next to the Philips workstation, there is a variety of similar vendors that can be used for reading CTC.
Workshop language: The workshop will be held in English.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam,
