SCMPCR E-learning Program (ELP-07): Computed Tomography and Interventional Radiology

Learning objectives of the program

This is a course with a series of lectures aims to enhance knowledge of participants on safety standards and good practice in Radiotherapy, and to support improving their practical skills and competencies in this field. The lectures will demonstrate the basic to advance theoretical and clinical aspects of modern radiotherapy practices among participants. The sessions will be highly intensive and interactive and would expect participants to exhibit a high degree of commitment and enthusiasm. The complete course will include 8 lectures by 8 speakers and a group discussion session with all the speakers.

The learning objectives of the e-learning program are:

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understanding the basic operational functions of medical imaging systems and image quality evaluations in interventional radiology.
  • To know how CT scan works from physics principles to qualitative image quality criteria Test objects
  • Understand how CT image quality and patient dose are affected by the characteristics of the various components of these imaging systems
  • To develop theoretical knowledge about CT image quality and processing technologies
  • To play a significant role in determining health care professionals’ proficiency with the most recent interventions and technologies.
  • Learning the emerging imaging technologies
  • Be able to properly use individual imaging modalities.
  • To implement effective Continuing professional development (CPD) e-learning programs for medical physicists.

The overall objective of the program is to improve the accuracy of treatment and diagnosis, increase cure rates and minimize side effects.

By the end of this course participants should be able to learn:

  • Understanding the basic operational functions of medical imaging systems and image quality evaluations in interventional radiology.
  • To know how CT scan works from physics principles to qualitative image quality criteria Test objects
  • Understand how CT image quality and patient dose are affected by the characteristics of the various components of these imaging systems
  • Understand how to perform dosimetry in Radiotherapy for proper performance and compliance
  • To develop theoretical knowledge about CT image quality and processing technologies
  • To play a significant role in determining health care professionals’ proficiency with the most recent interventions and technologies.
  • Learning the emerging imaging technologies
  • Be able to properly use individual imaging modalities.
  • To implement effective Continuing professional development (CPD) e-learning programs for medical physicists.
  • To achieve SDG-goal 3 (Good Health & Well-being) and SDG-goal 4 (Quality Education).
  • The overall objective of the program is to improve the accuracy of treatment, increasing cure rates and minimize side effects.

Target Audience

The course is also suitable for

  • Post Graduate Students of medical physics
  • Medical Physicists early in their careers and eager to update their knowledge of physics and technical aspects of Radiotherapy
  • Medical Physicist from Institutes / Hospitals
  • Researchers and academicians from the medical physics faculty

Teaching methodology

  • The lectures will be in a familiar format, introducing a specific topic through a presentation, with chat box and polling option for interaction with the lecturers by using Zoom Video Conferencing System.
  • After the lecture, there will be a Q & A session for 15 minutes.
  • Study materials related to the lectures will be provided to the participants after each lecture.
  • A group discussion session will be held with all the speakers and participants.
  • A limited number of participants will be selected to successfully proceed with the course.
  • At the end of the course, there will be an examination to judge the learning outcomes of the participants.
  • The examination procedure will be strictly maintained by the organizing committee and the answer script will be evaluated by the speakers.

Evaluation and quality assurance

An evaluation of the program by the speakers and participants will be executed for further improvement of the e-learning program. It is an option for judging the program by the participants and the speakers and is used for continuous improvements in the successive programs. Regarding this SCMPCR will provide an evaluation form through a link to the participants and speakers at the end of the course.
