The program combines didactic presentations with significant hands-on experience in the setting of small group learning.You will learn to utilize specific 3D tools and recognize pitfalls that will result in reduction of both reading times and false positives.Other topics include effective patient preparation, colonic distension, extra colonic CT findings, and issues relating to setting up a screening program. Frequent question and answer sessions and one-on-one supervision will allow for immediate feedback. By the conclusion of this course, students will know the essential components needed to run a successful VC screening program.This course also offers the experience of viewing live cases.
