CARE kV: A Physicians Perspective
Tuesday, June 26, 2012 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. ET
Reducing the kilo voltage, kV, provides significant dose benefits to patients; however, it can be challenging to implement without compromising image quality. Siemens has introduced the first automated kV selection algorithm in the industry that automatically recommends the optimal kV setting for each individual patient for each specific exam, CARE kV.
This presentation will discuss the rationale behind reducing kV and how CARE kV has assisted Dr. Marilyn J. Siegel in reaching new lows in radiation dose. The implementation process, improved workflow and improved patient outcomes will be presented along with case studies from St. Louis Children's Hospital. The webinar will conclude with a live Q&A session.
To assist with understanding and implementing CARE kV, Siemens is offering a three-part series of educational webinars. Join us for the second in the series, CARE kV: From a Physician's Perspective.
