Due to the success of previously held educational events, Canon Medical Systems took to the road again with its Aquilion CT Optimisation study days. The first location in the series of three events was Newport, Wales; the roadshow then travelled to London and finally visited York. The events, aimed at Radiographers, covered: Image Quality; Noise and its management in CT scanning; Dose optimisation including practical demonstrations using the Aquilion CT interface software; Advanced Canon Medical Systems technologies, such as SEMAR, Dual Energy and SURESubtraction and an update on IRR 17 & IR(ME)R 17.
Mark Thomas, CT Modality Manager at Canon Medical Systems; “We offer these study days, free of charge to our customers, as part of the company’s ‘Applications for Life’ commitment. The programme was designed to support users in getting the most from their equipment, as well as reassuring them that they have continuous support from Canon Medical Systems.”
Feedback on all the individual study days has been very positive. The quality of presentations received high ratings as did the relevance and range of subjects. In addition almost as highly scored were the quality of the venues and the ability for delegates to network. From the Celtic Manor Hotel, set in the Usk Valley, in Wales, to The Principal Hotel in York, delegates at all the venues enjoyed a stimulating and informative day in relaxed surroundings.
The overwhelming demand from delegates was for the study days to be continued, with comments ranging from: “Please do this every year; more and more please, thank you” to “Can I get on a mailing list for future events?” Other feedback included “Very informative and relevant to everyday practice.” Presenters were very approachable, and all had excellent knowledge and knew the subject inside out. Good coverage and relevance.”
