Radiomics: Basic Concepts and Clinical Applications for the Oncologic Patients

Date: 8 – 10 June 2021

Radiomics is a novel technology that unlocks new diagnostic capabilities by means of medical images and machine learning techniques. Today, medical imaging interpretation is solely based on subjective radiological opinions that suffers from increased variability and low reproducibility. Including Radiomics in the diagnostic process it is expected to result in improvement of diagnostic accuracy, as well as prediction of treatment response and access to early prognosis valuable information.

Electrical requirements for the electrical installation of medical radiological equipment

 

The course will consider the radiological aspects of the 2017 DH guidance “HTM06-01 Electrical services supply and distribution”. The new guidance has been re-structured and is more clearly split into two major policies – business risk and patient risk.  The requirements of this document need to be understood when a new radiology room is purchased especially that from now on, electrical installations compliance management will now be measured under the NHS Performance Assessment Model (PAM).

The course is for experienced project managers, medical and x-ray engineers and focuses on the relevant points for medical radiological installations.  There is a summary session at the beginning of the course that other healthcare staff may wish to attend in order to attain a brief overview of the new document.  This summary session would be aimed at radiographers and medical physics experts who are involved with medical radiological equipment purchasing and commissioning, and will explain the new policies and gives reference to the relevant sections of the guidance.

This short course is intended to be run at the customer’s site at their convenience.
