New company launched for CTC education
CT colonography (CTC) radiologists have launched a new company, VirtuoCTC, to provide guidance through products and services to achieve quality performance and interpretation in a CTC practice.

VirtuoCTC, led by Perry J. Pickhardt, MD, and David H. Kim, MD, was founded to streamline the process of incorporating CTC into clinical practice. The Madison, Wis.-based company said it will help radiologists implement CTC in their practice through hands-on training courses, a variety of useful templates, a teaching file and clinical database program, developed from a proven clinical model.

The flagship product offered by VirtuoCTC is a CTC teaching file complete with more than 50 proven cases. The teaching file covers the spectrum of colorectal findings encountered in CTC screening and provides the relevant CTC and optical colonoscopy findings. The teaching file cases are available in DICOM, as well as Viatronix V3D-Colon specific formats. VirtuoCTC also offers a clinical CTC database program that allows for tracking of clinical results, patient follow-up and program quality assurance.
