This subject offers the theoretical components to the modality of computed tomography (CT), and also examines new techniques and applications of CT. It is offered concurrently with the application of the clinically practical aspects of CT.
The aim of this subject is to provide the theoretical bases of the practice, new techniques and applications of CT scanning, and the mechanism to acquire information in order to perform as a professional in the field of CT. Emphasis will be placed upon the scanning techniques, scan protocols, clinical indications of the scan, pathology shown, and patient management. Emerging developments, whether they be in clinical practice, contrast agents, equipment or safety practice, will be examined. The subject also offers theoretical mechanisms to develop CT management policies and CT safety procedures for practice in CT scanning.
