3D Tissue Models
Best in Practice: Improving MR and CT Imaging
Caesar's Palace
3700 West Flamingo Road Las Vegas, NV 89103
Las Vegas, Nevada
This program is designed for physicians, physician trainees, and technologists, and is sponsored by Cleveland Clinic's Imaging Institute. This three-day program provides an in-depth review of the physics of both MRI and CT, and includes focused presentations emphasizing the spectrum of clinical applications. In addition, the recognition of common imaging artifacts, along with their solutions, and approaches to image and protocol optimization for both MRI and CT will be included.
