We are pleased to announce the i-Violin Webinar Series on Optimising CT Procedures and Radiation Protection in Oncology!

We are thrilled to introduce an engaging webinar series focused on implementing optimisation programs in computed tomography procedures. Tailored for radiologists, radiographers, and medical physicists, this educational initiative integrates image quality evaluation tools to minimize ionizing radiation exposure for oncological patients.

Target Audience: radiologists, radiographers, and medical physicists

Format: Online webinars.

Cost: Free of charge.

The i-Violin webinar series is composed of 4 webinars.
