Pictured are delegates at a systems training course “Thinking outside of the box,” organised by Toshiba Medical Systems and held at the historic Pendley Manor in Hertfordshire. The course provided systems training for customers within the North Thames and newly-established Oxbridge area.
Catering mainly for Aplio and Xario users, subjects included B-mode, Doppler, knobology and ultrasound of the groin.
Live scanning sessions included head and neck insight by Dr Lawrence Berman, senior lecturer in radiology at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, and Dr Simon Morley, consultant radiologist at UCLH, who also provided a phantom for practical biopsy training.
Dr Petrie DeVilliers, consultant radiologist at UCLH provided a whistle stop tour of the ankle and shoulder in his MSK session. Dr Trish Chudleigh, sonographer at the Rosie Maternity Hospital, part of Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge gave an informative talk on obstetric Doppler, including why and when to perform the different Doppler scans.
Mr Bill Smith, sonographer at CDS, London, made 3D ultrasound of the pelvis sound simple and left attendees wondering why more people don’t do it!
The course was attended by members of the Toshiba ultrasound applications team, including Filia Aristidou, Sally Davey, Shane Hanlon, David Sayer and Wendy Egan
