RCR holds clinical radiology undergraduate day

The Royal College of Radiologists’ clinical radiology undergraduate day attracted 46 delegates from medical schools across the UK. The meeting was organised by chair of the undergraduate committee Dr Pat Set and other committee members.

Delegates were welcomed with an enthusiastic introduction to a career in radiology from president of the college Dr Nicola Strickland.

One of the themes running through the meeting was the likely future impact of AI on the practice of radiology in the UK. The morning keynote lecture by consultant radiologist at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Dr Neelam Dugar addressed this question directly and sparked a prolonged and lively discussion.

In the afternoon vice president for clinical radiology Dr Caroline Rubin presented the RCR 2019 undergraduate radiology awards and prizes, while a number of the recipients gave presentations on their work.

The afternoon keynote lecture was presented by consultant forensic radiographer and director of Reveal Imaging Wayne Hoban. He gave an insight into his work including his contribution to the investigation of the Srebrenica massacre during the Bosnian war and the London Bombings in 2005.
