On Tuesday 23rd April, Dr Veronique Sauret-Jackson, Consultant Medical Physicist will return to deliver the session “CBCT Imaging and Radiation”

Veronique developed an interest in the medical applications of technology during her Physics degree. She then studied Medical Imaging and Bioengineering for her MSc. Her PhD focused on the fusion of Nuclear Medicine and CT images to give physicians both functional and anatomical information. She has been working as a Medical Physicist with clinicians and helping them visualise and use their patients’ image data, in ways that were relevant to them and their specific needs for more than 15 years. Her professional focus as managing director of Cavendish Imaging is on delivering excellence in the imaging services provided.

This session is aimed at anyone who referrers for or interprets  CBCT Images and those with a general interest in Physics, Radiology and CBCT Imaging. The subject is designed to adhere to Current UK governmental guidance published by Public Health England and the EADMFR
