Non-ionising radiation specialist at Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust Michael Lynn presents to delegates.
Organised by IEL, an ultrasound workshop held in Brighton in May brought together ultrasound professionals to allow them to share practices and formulate new ideas for streamlining ultrasound quality assurance. Speakers presented on all areas of ultrasound, from the use of phantoms for imaging and training purposes to using automated software for QA.
Guest speaker Sander Dekker from Cablon Medical in the Netherlands spoke about UltraIQ including its features and the benefits it can bring to a department. UltraIQ is an automated software that can be used for multiple large scale assessments, with the primary goal being to streamline ultrasound QA and offer a time saving. It allows for automatic measurement of a number of parameters required for ultrasound QA and overall removes subjectivity that can be caused by the human eye in order to give reproducible results, according to IEL.
