“So much of modern healthcare depends upon diagnostic imaging scans and interventional radiology” Prof Nicola Strickland, President Royal College of Radiologists Oct 2017
“The need for scans continues to grow. In England from 2013-16 the number of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans respectively rose by more than 30% - three times more than the rate of workforce growth. Technological advances mean that these scans are more complex than ever before and take longer to interpret…Last year, only 3% of NHS imaging departments were able to report all their patient scans within normal working hours” October 2017, Royal College of Radiologists
This one day conference will examine how to work with digital imaging, radiology information systems and PACS to deliver the national ambition of a paperless and filmless NHS, improving imaging services and timeliness.
The conference will address national developments, new models of radiology care including an update from the radiology vanguard site which emphasizes a move towards a collaborative clinical network approach, getting the most out of RIS and PACs through effective workflow and systems design, and how to integrate them with other Trust systems and Electronic Patient Records. There will be a focus on improving the clinical end user experience, interoperability standards, sharing radiology images across organisations, information governance, the role of specialty systems, and the role of information systems in moving towards a 7 day service and delivering real time bedside imaging to improve patient care.
The day also features a pre conference supplier showcase where suppliers will be demonstrating their systems and how they can support your organization to deliver digital imaging in practice.
This course provides 5 CPD credits in accordance with the CPD Scheme of the Royal College of Radiologists
