2020 Joint AAPM/COMP Virtual Meeting
Improving Health Quality. Increasing Global Impact.
July 12 - 16 | Virtual Meeting
Due to ongoing health concerns related to the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as global travel restrictions, AAPM has decided to evolve the Joint AAPM|COMP Meeting content into a virtual (completely online) meeting in place of the in-person meeting originally scheduled for July 12-16, 2020 in Vancouver, BC.

Virtual Meeting Program Available Online: Week of June 1

RSNA Meeting Poster

RSNA 2020
Human Insight/Visionary Medicine
November 29 - December 5, 2020 | Virtual Meeting
As the convener of the world’s largest radiology meeting with over 50,000 attendees from 137 countries, our ability to conduct RSNA 2020 in Chicago is impacted by global public health considerations. With a mission that focuses on health and patient care, the primary consideration for RSNA is the health and safety of attendees, presenters, exhibitors, staff, and by extension, the global community. Therefore, we concluded it would be impossible to safely conduct RSNA 2020 in person and have decided to hold RSNA 2020: Human Insight/Visionary Medicine as an exclusively virtual event.

Corgi Phantom:
The Corgi Phantom is designed to evaluate cone beam CT systems. The modular phantom can be configured for different scan sizes, providing tests for multi-axis high resolution, sensitometry, cone beam artifacts, and uniformity. Additionally, the phantom includes holes for measuring dose.

Liver Phantom:
The Liver Phantom combines the advantages of objective test objects and anthropomorphic elements for evaluation of advanced iterative processing. The phantom includes low contrast test objects designed both for ROC tests along with conventional patterns, metal artifact inserts, and beads for MTF calculations.
