    3D Imaging Techniques for CT

    • CTM 1609
    • Course Type: Online
    • Cost: $20
    • Credits: 1.0 CE - A

    This course is designed to deliver an overview of 3D imaging techniques for computed tomography, including 3D scanning and image generation. The content addresses concepts of 3D image generations, 3D space transformations, post-processing techniques, and treatment applications. This activity may be available in multiple formats or from different sponsors. ARRT regulations state that an individual may not repeat a self-learning activity for credit if it was reported in the same or any subsequent biennium.

    3D Printing in Medicine: An Overview

    • ERI 3000
    • Course Type: Online
    • Credits: 1.0 ARRT Category A credits or 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™

    3D printing uses high-resolution, high-quality volumetric computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) images to create highly-accurate, 3D fabricated objects. 3D printing is increasingly used for medical/clinical applications to create personalized anatomic models and implants, and to assist in planning and guiding surgery. Specific clinical applications include printed models for organs and vessels, fabrication of implants, prostheses, stents, and surgical tools, and even manufacturing of drugs themselves. 3D printed anatomic models are also being used in place of cadavers to enhance premedical and medical education and training. Several types of 3D printers are available that are classified on the basis of the technology used (ie, liquid- or powder-solidification technology, or extrusion-based systems). The different types of 3D printer systems also vary in terms of accuracy and costs, making selection of a system an important consideration for a particular application. 3D bioprinting is a type of 3D printing that uses a combination of cells, growth factors, and/or biomaterials to fabricate biomedical tissues and organs that imitate natural tissue characteristics. Recently, US regulatory bodies and radiologic professional societies are considering the role 3D printing will play in clinical medicine, to ensure these products are maximally safe and effective.

    A Review of MRI for Sports-Related Injuries of the Knee, Shoulder, and Hip

    • Credits: 1.25 ARRT Category A credits or 1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™

    Sports injuries are common in active individuals, regardless of the level of performance (professional to "weekend warrior"). With increasing participation and intensity of sports training in the United States, the incidence of sports-related injuries has increased dramatically over the last several years. Using both medical imaging technology and orthopedic evaluation techniques to assess athletes' sports injuries can help clinicians diagnose and treat injuries in their early stages. The goal for clinicians and patients alike after an athletic injury is for the patients to return to activity as quickly as possible. In order to achieve this goal, a correct diagnosis and treatment plan must be made. Medical imaging is useful not only in its ability to confirm or refute a clinical diagnosis; it plays a critical role in guiding the treatment plan and long-term outcome of the injury.
