Presentation Title: High Resolution, Wide Area, Low Dose, and Spectral: All In ONE (Insight)

Abstract: We will showcase the relevant hardware and software features introduced with the fifth generation of wide-area detector CT, the Aquilion ONE / INSIGHT Edition, that we have been using for about six months. Demonstrative cases will highlight its advances in cardiac and visceral imaging while discussing its place in the current and future CT portfolio.

Learning objectives: Be informed of the diagnostic possibilities of the fifth generation of wide-area detector CT.

Speaker: Prof. Mathias Prokop, MD, PhD
Radiologist, Professor and Chairman, Department of Medical Imaging
Radboud University Medical Center
Nijmegen, the Netherlands

Prof. Mathias Prokop is Professor of Radiology and Chairman of the Department of Medical Imaging at the Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. His department in Nijmegen focuses on impactful innovations in care and now hosts one of the largest research groups in Europe. His goal is to build a blueprint for healthcare in which work remains fulfilling, but care remains affordable. During his time as president of the Dutch Society of Radiology, he initiated a strategic re-orientation of Radiology away from pure reporting to a better position within future healthcare environments. He considers meaningful use of AI and scanner technology as necessary enabling factors in this process.

Learning objectives: Participants will assess the real-world applicability of Photon Counting CT in clinical practice based on initial experiences.
