Today clinicians rely on chest X-rays as the first diagnostic test to evaluate suspected lung disease. Chest radiography continues to be the most commonly performed imaging study and provides a wealth of vital clinical information. However signs of pathologic conditions of the chest are often minute and obscured by the overlap of three dimensional anatomical structures. Abnormalities such as pulmonary nodules can go undetected by even the most experienced radiologists.
Join us for a complimentary webinar to learn how one of the top academic radiology departments in North America is using VolumeRAD to improve the detection of small lung nodules. Listen to Dr. Kicska, Associate Professor of Cardiothoracic Imaging at University of Washington discuss the advantages and limitations of Digital Tomosynthesis and how this cost-effective technology could be used to resolve inconclusive x-rays "here and now", with minimal added radiation.
- Review the basic principles of digital tomosynthesis, its advantages and limitations compared to standard radiography and CT
- Review clinical cases where VolumeRAD is used to detect pathologic conditions of the chest
Ask questions and join the discussion on emerging applications of digital tomosynthesis in thoracic imaging.
