By Kris Nunez

AuntMinnie.com recently published an RSNA 2016 CT preview, outlining some of the abstracts of note.  Three of the twenty-four abstracts noted were the product of researchers in the CT CIC.

  • Web-based CT protocol system untangles CT protocol knot
    Sunday, November 27 | 10:45 a.m.-10:55 a.m. | SSA20-01 | Room S403B
    Managing CT protocols, especially at a large institution, can be an unwieldy task. But researchers from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, tamed the beast with a web-based protocol management system.
  • 90 sites compete in low-dose liver lesion detection
    Sunday, November 27 | 11:35 a.m.-11:45 a.m. | SSA20-06 | Room S403B
    Leading medical and physics societies created a contest to compare iterative reconstruction and denoising techniques in low-dose CT for liver lesion detection. Facilities in 26 countries took up the challenge, according to this presentation from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.
  • The dubious value of lead aprons
    Monday, November 28 | 3:10 p.m.-3:20 p.m. | SSE21-02 | Room S403A
    Are lead aprons really helpful for reducing scatter radiation from CT? A study from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, casts doubt on the utility of shields placed outside the scan region.
