Carol Young, a Radiographer at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust, has won the Siemens Healthcare International CT Image Contest in the Cardiac category for her ‘Tetralogy of Fallots’ case.

The image was chosen for its image quality and obtained using the lowest radiation dose.

Carol commented: “I was both happy and surprised to hear that I had been nominated for my Tetralogy of Fallot image, which showed the four defects including connection between the ventricles and the absence of the pulmonary valve.

“Hearing that I had won was a real honour – every radiology professional strives to achieve best diagnostic quality at the lowest possible dose. Particularly in paediatric imaging it is crucial to minimise the associated radiation risks, as children are more sensitive to radiation exposure.”
