Title: Walk through the AAPM CT Protocol Management and Review Practice Guideline

Speaker: Dr. Dianna D. Cody

Date/Time: Thursday, March 12 at 7pm EDT

About the Webinar:

Regulators such as some states, and Accreditation Programs such as the ACR and The Joint Commission, are continuing to require regular review of CT exam protocols. The AAPM released a Practice Guideline describing this process over 5 years ago. The Chair of that committee will walk the webinar participants through the updated version of this document, and along the way will point out the areas that were recently identified for changes.
