As a result of both the success and popularity of its previously held education events, Canon Medical Systems once again took to the road to visit Scotland as part of its series of CT Dose Optimisation Study Days. The event was held at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow and was fully subscribed, with over forty delegates, some of whom had travelled from as far away as The Western Isles. Delivered as part of Canon’s Applications for Life commitment, this event was provided free-of-charge to Canon CT customers. The event, aimed at radiographers, included presentations on Image Quality, Noise, its management in CT scanning and Dose Optimisation, supported by practical demonstrations using the Aquilion CT interface software. In addition, the Canon CT modality team presented on Canon Medical Systems’ advanced technologies, covering SEMAR, Dual Energy and SURESubtraction. With the new regulations coming into force, the team also included an update on IRR 17 & IR(ME)R 17.
Feedback was, once again, very positive. The quality of presentations received high ratings as did the relevance and range of subjects. In addition, almost as highly scored was the quality of the venue and catering. Typical comments included, “Good coverage on a range of topics; very good level of information”, and “I have taken away a lot of information from this course, which will help improve my everyday working practice; very worthwhile”.
