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.
