Program Summary

In clinical practice, a busy CT suite can experience a bottleneck of patient throughput that can impact wait times and patient satisfaction. As modern imaging departments continue to evolve with the installation of the latest devices, software, and tools to provide best in class care for their patients in the most efficient and productive manner, there is a necessity to share these best practices among healthcare providers.

This CE accredited webinar provides insight into the adoption of Smart CT Solutions and features two expert faculty members who will share their experiences on how to increase workflow efficiency and quality improvement in the CT Suite. Further information shared will demonstrate the value of smart contrast delivery systems, by expanding upon the importance of capturing and analyzing patient-enriched data through case proven examples and the incorporation of AI solutions
