Virtual Symposium

UCSF Symposium on Radiation Safety in Computed Tomography

      The UC DOSE Virtual Symposium on Radiation Safety and Computed Tomography is available until May 2016 for on-demand viewing. The Symposium focuses on educational efforts to optimize CT utilizatoin and radiation dose, and is available to physicians, technologists, physicists, nurses, medical students, patients, administrators, and anyone who wants to understand the issues surrounding CT radiation dose.

      The Symposium hosts a library of over 100 on-demand lectures, offering over 34 hours of Contuinuing Education credits. Because the meeting is virtual, participants get the full educational experience while cutting travel costs and inconveniences. Like an in-person meeting, separate halls at the conference include professionally edited lectures, discussions on new legislation and professional oversight surrounding radiation, discussions on radiation risk communication to patients, discussions of dose registries, presentations by advocacy groups, a virtual CT simulation "CTSim", and vendor rooms demonstrating different dose acquisition software.

      All lectures will be available for continuing education credits until May 2016, and may be extended further. CME Credits are available for CAMPEP (medical physicists), ASRT (technologists), and AMA (physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals). Visit the Symposium website for more information on the CME options.
