April 5, 2017 — The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) and Toshiba Medical announced a new partnership dedicated to providing career development opportunities for radiology fellows and residents in the United States. Toshiba Medical’s support will allow 250 U.S.-based fellows and residents to join SCCT at no charge for one year, enhancing their early career opportunities and building their awareness of the growing contributions of cardiovascular computed tomography.

“Fellows and Residents who join SCCT through this program will now have access to a full range of opportunities,” said SCCT Immediate Past President Jonathon A. Leipsic, M.D., FSCCT. “In this formative stage of their training, they will be exposed to exciting and important technology, high-quality educational opportunities and recent research from the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography and access to our global community.”

“These fellows and residents will have opportunities for committee service, gain presentation experience, and interact with senior physicians and scientists on important research and educational initiatives,” said SCCT Membership Committee Chair and SCCT Past President Matthew J. Budoff, M.D., FSCCT. “Our field has advanced especially rapidly due to extraordinary doctors working with visionary corporate partners towards excellence in patient care. This is also an important opportunity for the fellows and residents to recognize the importance of forming productive working relationships with industry partners early in their careers.”

An RSNA attendee using Novarad’s OpenSight augmented reality for surgical applications. It was demonstrated with a live person laying on a table in their booth to simulate a patient on an operating room or cath lab table. The simulated patient had the medical images registered with their anatomy so the HoloLens user could virtually slice through the patient to examine the anatomy of interest overlaid on the patient. Novarad said the technology may aid procedural planning and allow better visualization of internal anatomical landmarks.

GE Healthcare rolled out its first implementation of AI in its ultrasound systems, starting with its new point-of-care Venue system. The user images the patient with a 3-D ultrasound probe and the system’s AI identifies the anatomy and displays the optimal views. The idea is to speed diagnosis by increasing the reproducibility of the standard views and measurements between various users. GE plans to add this AI technology to all its ultrasound platforms in the coming years.


GE Healthcare showed a new Assist technology for its interventional guided therapy (IGS) angiography systems. Rotational angiography 3-D-CT like imaging scans in the cath lab are often suboptimal because of respiratory motion. A new Assist technology helps cancel out this motion to improve image quality. Critical areas of interest can sometimes be missed or obscured on images because of motion blur, but the new software helps preserved these areas by filtering out the motion.
