Canon Medical Systems held two successful study days, one in London and one in York. Both meetings had a clinical focus.

The London course, entitled “State of the art advanced ultrasound technology and its clinical uses”, was aimed at sonographers, radiologists and registrars. It provided an opportunity for delegates to consolidate and advance their ultrasound knowledge, with leading experts in the field sharing experience of new technologies and their everyday use, with clinical demonstrations.

The York study day entitled “Ultrasound 2020 and beyond: how, when & where”, was aimed at all ultrasound professionals with a focus on the challenges of the rapidly changing environment.

The programme for the London event opened with “Advanced ultrasound technologies and their everyday clinical uses”, presented by Professor Adrian Lim, Consultant Radiologist at Charing Cross Hospital. Dawn McDonald, Consultant Radiographer at James Paget Hospital, Great Yarmouth spoke on “Breast elastography: its potential role in breast disease and implications for future management in benign findings”.  This was followed by Professor John Simpson, Consultant, Paediatric & Fetal Cardiology at Evelina Hospital, speaking on “advanced fetal cardiology”. Dr. Lol Berman, Consultant Radiologist and Senior Lecturer Radiology at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge spoke on ultra high frequency imaging of the head and neck with imaging tips and a clinical demonstration.

At the York venue, Dr. Tim Hoare, Consultant Radiologist at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle-upon-Tyne presented on “Appendicitis and what to do when it isn’t”, followed by Dr. Richard Cooper, Consultant Radiologist at South Tyneside Hospital speaking on “Hernias – a practical approach”. Simon Richards, Programme Leader at Teesside University and Chair of CASE, together with Ben Stenberg Consultant Sonographer at Newcastle Teaching Hospitals Trust introduced “The future of sonographic education – provider versus needs”, and this was followed by a discussion from the floor.  Dr. Richard Cooper gave a second talk, entitled “Future technologies now – high frequency imaging and SMI.” The meeting closed with the Canon Medical Systems team presenting “Helping you meet your real-time challenges”.

Both meetings received great feedback, including such comments as “glad to give up a Saturday to attend”, and “loved it – very informative.”
