11:45 – 13:00       Lunch Symposium New developments in CT and their impact on Head and Neck Radiology (& Lunch Break)

                             Recent years have seen the emergence of a whole new range of developments in CT.
                             Techniques such as model-based iterative reconstruction and spectral CT offer improved image quality at lower imaging dose,
                             enhancing diagnostic capabilities of CT.
                             This symposium will outline the characteristics of those new tools, illustrating their impact on Head and Neck Radiology with clinical cases.
