Undergraduate student Kimberley Rule has been rewarded for achieving the highest mark in her research dissertation for the BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography course at the University of Suffolk.
Fujifilm Medical Systems was approached by the university to help with a reward of an instax camera. The company has long worked with universities and education in healthcare through the supply of equipment and training. With the current focus on staffing levels, Fujifilm is always keen to support the next generation of radiographers and radiologists.
University of Suffolk’s Dr Ruth Strudwick said: “Kimberley’s project was an integrative review comparing the diagnostic accuracy of MRI and PETCT in the assessment of patients with multiple myeloma. She focused specifically on the detection of intra and extramedullary lesions and the role of diagnostic imaging in post-treatment evaluation.
“Scoring 91 per cent, this was an exceptional piece identifying the superior physiological evaluation of residual disease post treatment provided by PETCT, and the potential to increase sensitivity through the addition of diffusion-weighted sequences in MRI.”
Fujifilm said: “We’d like to additionally congratulate Kimberley who is now working as a band 5 diagnostic radiographer at East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust in Ipswich.”
