Presentations to Feature Updates from Leading Cone Beam CT Physicists
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Annapolis, MD, August 7th, 2020 —RadSite™, a leading accreditation organization promoting quality-based imaging practices, announced today that its next webinar will take place on Wednesday, August 12 at 2 p.m. ET. The webinar is “Moving to a Uniform Physics Testing Protocol for Cone Beam CT Imaging.”
The webinar will describe ongoing activities to establish national standards for Cone Beam CT imaging, with a focus on physics testing. Several thought-leaders will discuss recent efforts to develop a uniform phantom that will help standardize physics testing for different Cone Beam CT imaging systems. The presenters will provide a detailed overview on how Cone Beam CT imaging systems operate and how to optimize clinical and quality outputs through standardized measurement protocols.
The webinar will be moderated by Eliot Siegel, MD, RadSite’s Standards Committee Chair, and will feature the following speakers:
- Jeff Siewerdsen, PhD, Professor, Dept of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University
- John M. Boone, PhD, Professor of Radiology and Chief of Medical Physics, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, University of California Davis Medical Center
- Joshua Levy, President, The Phantom Lab

“For the past two years, RadSite has been developing national accreditation standards for Cone Beam CT imaging,” notes Dr. Siegel. “One of the challenges for promoting quality-based and consistent Cone Beam CT imaging is the need to develop uniform physics standards, rather than the current situation in which CBCT manufacturers set their own requirements for image quality.” He adds: “This webinar will feature thought-leaders who are working on developing uniform physics testing protocols, and it will highlight how RadSite plans to incorporate a universal methodology in its new Cone Beam CT accreditation program, scheduled to be launched this fall.”
