The first two-day oncological imaging course organised by Paul Strickland Scanner Centre in association with Mount Vernon Cancer Centre took place in October.
The event was attended by 59 delegates and was held at The Royal College of Radiologists in Holborn on the Friday and at Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood on the Saturday. Attendees included radiologists and oncologists, trainees, diagnostic and therapy radiographers and allied health professionals.
Day one was radiologist-led and focused on imaging for different tumour types, with interactive case-based lectures and discussions delivered jointly by experts from clinical radiology and oncology, highlighting key learning points from both disciplines. The second day was radiographer-led and focused on understanding and consolidating the roles of diagnostic radiology and radiotherapy in oncology patients’ treatment planning through to delivery. It was presented jointly by specialist diagnostic and therapy radiographers.
Feedback from delegates praised the knowledgeable speakers and the joint presentations from oncologists and radiologists. One delegate said it was a “fascinating and valuable insight into different applications of imaging for oncology.”
