Are you a Radiologist or Radiographer with an interest in gastrointestinal imaging?

Look no further than our two-day hands-on course, designed specifically for individuals like you.

During the workshop, you can expect a mix of didactic lectures and hands-on sessions that cover the topics required for RANZCR CTC accreditation.

Using Philips IntelliSpace Portal (ISP) advanced visualization software, you'll review a selection of at least 50 verified CTC cases, including normal, medium and large polyps, and pseudo-lesions.

With your personal ISP workstation with full 3D datasets, you'll be able to get hands-on experience and learn from accredited CTC Radiologist expert instructors.

Key Takeaways

  1. Familiarity with the indications and contra-indications to CTC.
  2. Familiarity with types of bowel preparation in order to minimize the volume of residual fluid in the colon. Familiarity with the regimes of “minimal preparation” and faecal tagging.
  3. Awareness of the methods of insufflation of the colon. Current recommendations are for the use of automatic pressure-limited insufflation devices. These require a certain degree of training in their use.
  4. Use of various scanning protocols (low-dose, standard-dose +/- IV contrast) dependant on the clinical indication and age of patient. It is common practice to perform prone scans at low-dose and tailor the supine acquisition according to the findings on the prone scan; this requires rapid assessment by the radiologist “on the go.
