Together with Hasting’s Conquest Hospital, Toshiba Medical Systems ran a study day at the hospital’s education centre on Starting a cardiac CT service’ that attracted 64 attendees from across the UK.
The Conquest was the first UK site to have a 64 detector scanner installed and staff have been using the Aquilion system since 2005. The hospital was also one of the first to set up and run a formal cardiac CT service.
In addition to hosting the day, the hospital provided speakers from radiology and cardiology. The programme attracted five RCR CPD credits.
Karen Acton, lead CT superintendent radiographer for East Surrey Hospital Trust, said later: “This was a well thought out programme that will be very useful in implementing a cardiac scanning service.”
