Annual British Society for the History of Radiology Lecture 2022

Hugh Turvey and Michael Jackson on The Art of Radiology

Published: 30 November 2021 Learning

This year's BSHR annual lecture explores the deeply rooted relationship between art and radiology, and is presented as a "double header" by an internationally acclaimed X-ray artist and a working clinical radiologist. 

Hugh Turvey is the first, and now permanent, Artist in Residence to the British Institute of Radiology, and Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society.

His work has been exhibited across the globe and commercial projects have included work with partners including Google, Ford and Chanel. He has also worked extensively with hospitals and community projects, advocating the benefits of both art and science. His talk will reveal the creative synergy between the two disciplines, richly illustrated with 
examples of his work. 

Michael Jackson is a Consultant Paediatric Radiologist  at the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People, Edinburgh, and Trustee to BSHR. His new book, Imagining Imaging, celebrates the collision of artistic endeavour and imaging science. This lecture, marking 50 years of Computed Tomography, will explain why artistic techniques pioneered hundreds or thousands of years ago are required to make sense of 21st century cross-sectional imaging. 

Art and Radiology will be held at 7pm on Monday 7th February 2022 at the Royal College of Radiologists, Lincoln's Inn Field, London and will also be streamed online 

Admission to this lecture is free. To attend in person, please register by emailing: Dr Arpan K Banerjee at [email protected] by 28th January 2022.
