Module 6 covers the Image Post Processing relating to CT Scanner. Following this module, you will have an appreciation of the concept of post processing and you will understand the volume rendering concept. Moreover you will be able to compare maximum intensity projection (MIP) and minimum intensity projection (MinIP) and to understand the Image Fusion process.

Module seven of this CT Scan Essential e-Learning ARRT CE Credits courseis about CT Scanner Image Quality.

As a result of technologic changes, image quality is another significant development. Early images appeared blocky but current images have shown much improvement. Those include improved spatial resolution, decreased scanning time, tube changes which increase loadability capable of dynamic scanning, and increased density resolution.

Description

CT Essentials is an 8-module course designed to provide an introduction to computed tomography imaging for anyone interested in understanding its history, what it is, how it works, and how it impacts medical imaging today.
The CT Essentials course is an overall introductory course to prepare users to cross-train into CT, refresh their knowledge of CT basics, or help other healthcare professionals learn more about the modality and gain CE credits. The modules are designed to be taken alone or as a packaged set.
The topics covered in the 8-module set include: Patient Care, Radiation Safety, CT Terminology, History of CT Scanners, Acquisitions and Parameters, Image Post-Processing, Image Quality, and Informatics.
Each module lists objectives that will be covered in the module. Modules include images and graphs that help facilitate learning and interactive animations to help relate a concept to a visual representation that the user can control. Each module concludes with a summary and a short quiz to test comprehension of the material covered in that module.
