Ultrasound Quality Assurance Workshop

The IPEM Ultrasound and Non-ionising Radiation Special Interest Group (UNIR SIG) will be be hosting a hands-on workshop on Ultrasound Quality Assurance.


The objective of the day is to empower Medical Physics staff, or those responsible for overseeing local Quality Assurance (QA), to understand and perform appropriate testing on ultrasound scanners and their associated probes in line with IPEM guidance and current best practice.

The day will be split into two parts; the morning will include guidance around the current IPEM guidance (namely IPEM Report 102), regulations and legislation relating to Ultrasound QA, including screening programmes.

There will also be an overview of the equipment life cycle and where testing (acceptance, routine and ad hoc) fits into this. Plus knowledge exchange on troubleshooting and common faults.

The afternoon will include demonstrations and hands-on experience in testing multiple image modes and are pleased to confirm Philips, GE Healthcare, and MIS Healthcare will be providing scanners and equipment specialists to assist with the hands on experience.

We are also pleased to confirm Xiel will be attending with their Ultra IQ software.

NB - a basic level of ultrasound is required.

Venue
The workshop will be held at The Birmingham Conference and Events Centre, Hill Street, Birmingham B5 4EW
