Make the most of the UKRCO event in Liverpool this year by finding out what CPD opportunities are available.
Book a place and attend one of the short ‘bite-size’ lectures, demonstrations or presentations offered by companies in the exhibition area. The sessions offer education and training linked to clinical practice or techniques.
Some of the sessions are CPD Now endorsed, and provide you with a valuable opportunity to pick up new skills, learn fresh procedures and enhance your knowledge and understanding.
Below, you will find a list of the Education on the Stand sessions with information on how you can book your place and avoid disappointment.
This information will be updated with additional courses up until the conference begins. Check back regularly to ensure you don’t miss out!
If you haven’t booked your ticket for UKRCO yet, please do register.
Remember you can register for free to attend the exhibition as a day delegate.
Make sure to visit the CoR stand (P35) and chat with the officers and have your picture taken for Synergy News.
An opportunity to have a one hour session with a Carestream Clinical Application Specialist to have 1:1 training on a topic of their choice.
Please note this training is only offered to Carestream PACS/RIS customers.
One hour slots available on the Carestream stand during the exhibition opening times. Attendees must pre-book.

Safety of Gadolinium Based Contrast Agents (GBCAs)
Overview of types of adverse reactions associated with GBCAs. Brief update on NSF. Gadolinium accumulation in brain detected in the form of unexpected T1 hyper-signals. Review of Published data on Gadolinium acculation. Comparison of structural stability of commonly used GBCAs.
Contrast induced nephropathy (CIN)
Definition of CIN. The pathophysiology of CIN. The risk factors related to CIN. The role of osmolality and viscosity of the contrast agent in CIN. A detailed analysis of Iso-osmolar contrast agent and Low-Osmolar contrast agents and their role in the aetiology of CIN. Potential prevention of CIN.
Use of Oil-Soluble Contrast Media (OSCM) in HysteroSalpingoGraphy (HSG)
Overview of diagnostic efficacy of OSCM vs WSCM. Overview of clinical data showing potential link of contrast media in enhancing pregnancy rates. Review of the recent Dutch Multi-centred study.
Fusion Imaging in RFA – personalised ultrasound in action
10:30-10:55, every day
Fusion ultrasound in radiofrequency ablation (RFA) enables direct anatomical correlation between imaging modalities in order to target therapies to achieve the best outcomes in the management of a patient's disease. Join us to explore the dynamics of precision medicine in the management of focal liver disease and see how fusion ultrasound has the potential to affect treatment
Cardiac CT essentials
11:00-11:25, every day
The low cost and high sensitivity of cardiac CT make it the first-line investigation for patients presenting with chest pain due to suspected coronary artery disease. As a result cardiac CT is performed routinely in many departments across the UK with demand likely to increase. In this session we will look at the most important factors for successful cardiac CT including clinical indications, patient preparation, and basic cardiac anatomy. We will consider the importance of ECG gating, chosen acquisition modes (retrospective, prospective and Flash) and reconstruction.
Optimising image quality to deliver precision medicine in the Operating Theatre
11:30-11:55, every day
Join us at this session to explore factors which may be considered to optimise image quality using a mobile C-arm during the theatre case. Areas covered include: selecting the correct imaging application, scene length, brightness and contrast and other general topics.
Radiotherapy planning in prostrate imaging
13:00-13:25, every day
A discussion around the staging and radiotherapy planning of prostate imaging on the MAGNETOM Aera RT discussing the differences in scanning, the set-up of the patient and the reasons behind radiotherapy planning in MRI.
Advanced imaging techniques in radiotherapy planning
13:30-13:55, every day
An insight into the benefits of dual energy and Direct Density: their roles with lesion identification, contouring and dose calculations.
