Optimisation in paediatric imaging

27 April 2016 10:00


Organised by IPEM's Diagnostic Radiology Special Interest Group

Children are at higher risk than adults from radiation exposure, and the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations require that special attention is given to the optimisation of paediatric imaging protocols. The anatomical and physiological differences, variation in patient size and, in many centres, low numbers, makes this particularly challenging.

This meeting aims to bring together physicists, radiographers, radiologists and clinicians to share experiences of tailoring CT, fluoroscopic and radiographic procedures to deliver low dose and high quality imaging for children.

Learning Outcomes

1. Improved understanding of how protocols can be tailored for paediatric imaging
2. Sharing of examples of good practice

Target audience
Medical Physicists, Radiographers and Radiologists
Clinicians involved in paediatric imaging and interventional lists

Invited Speakers
Laura Martin, Principal Clinical Scientist, Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust
Mike Holubinka, CT Physicist, Great Ormond Street Hospital
Clare McLaren, Consultant Radiographer, Great Ormond Street Hospital
Jennifer Harvey, MRI & CT Radiographer, Great Ormond Street Hospital
