London MRI Leads group connects like-minded professionals

A group dedicated to bringing together experts in the field of MRI from across London has been formed. The London MRI Leads group has committed to advancing the field of MRI by fostering collaboration and knowledge sharing among MRI professionals. The group provides a platform to connect with like-minded individuals and stay up-to-date with the latest developments.

The network of MRI experts from major private and public hospitals in London was initially composed of 15 members of 15 different institutions, who attended the first meeting on March 22. During the first meeting significant topics were discussed, ranging from interventional MRI safety to remote MRI scanning and conditional and non-conditional pacemakers. As well as open forum discussions, senior radiographer Anton Quinsten from Essen University Hospital, Germany, delivered a lecture titled ‘Pioneers of remote scanning’.

As the founder of the London MRI Leads group, lead MRI superintendent Samuel Oliveira from HCA Lister Hospital, Chelsea Outpatient Centre and Chiswick Medical Centre, is excited to build a community that supports the development of MRI professionals in the region. The group offers a platform to fulfill his vision of creating networking opportunities, educational resources and an open forum for discussion on technological trends, MRI safety and best practices.

The next meeting takes place in October, focusing on AI integration on MRI workflows and patient pathways, safety standardisation methods across private and public sectors, and international guideline updates.

“If you are a passionate MRI lead and want to join a community that shares your enthusiasm, then the London MRI Leads group is the perfect place for you. We encourage you to join us and help us shape the future of MRI in London and the UK,” said Oliveira.
