CBCT Imaging and Radiation – 25 Sept, 2017

seprator

Dr Veronique Sauret-Jackson, consultant medical physicist, will be presenting this CPD session on Monday 25 September 2017 at 7pm.

The aims of the lecture are to:

  • describe how X-rays interact with matter
  • understand the biological effects of radiation
  • identify the origins of background radiation
  • understand the principles of image detectors and their influence on image quality
  • explain 2D and 3D radiation doses
  • identify the difference between 2D and 3D imaging
  • be able to strive for a minimised radiation dosage to patients.

Veronique Sauret-Jackson 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 trained as a medical physicist at Southampton General Hospital and the Christie Hospital in Manchester before moving to UCL Hospitals and running the Medical Physics’ imaging service.

Veronique has been working as a Medical Physicist with clinicians and helping them visualising and using their patients’ image data, in ways that were relevant to them, to 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.

The cost of the event is £60 (£30 for regular Cavendish Imaging referrers*).

The event will be at Cavendish Imaging HARLEY STREET. You could also join online from anywhere via our live internet connection.
