On Tuesday 2nd July, Dr Veronique Sauret-Jackson, Consultant Medical Physicist will be our guest speaker to deliver the session “CBCT Interpretation – Artefacts on CBCT Images” this is the third part our Interpretation series and also forms part of the Cavendish Imaging Masterclass.

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 will cover the physics of CBCT to then gain an understanding of why artefacts occur. It will also include practical tricks to avoid artefacts or to work with them. This subject is aimed at anyone who referrers for, interprets, or has an interest in the science behind CBCT Imaging.
