Welcome to the UKRC 2013
programme. Once again, I am
amazed at the scale and quality of
the event that the vice presidents
and their teams have put together
this year. Working hand-in-hand with
our professional conference organisers,
Profile Productions, they have developed a series of sessions that
address every aspect of medical imaging, from state-of-the-art clinical
teaching, through the latest thinking on service delivery and technological
innovation in a rapidly changing world, to the challenge of cutting edge
research in radiology.
UKRC 2013 will be held for the first time at ACC Liverpool, a modern convention centre set on the
banks of the River Mersey and adjacent to the Pier Head and Albert Docks World Heritage Sites. But it
isn’t just the venue that will be new and exciting. For the first time, we will be holding a plenary lecture
session that we hope will bring the whole UKRC community together, celebrating the multidisciplinary
nature of our field. We hope that it will provide a fitting complement to the eponymous lectures
organised by UKRC partner societies. There will also be a radiology research session, in which eminent
figures from some of the world’s leading academic radiology centres will discuss what is needed to
build a really successful research-led department. Another innovation will be the availability throughout
the week of a room equipped with Mac workstations running Osirix. This facility will be used for a range
of activities including Osirix teaching sessions, interactive clinical sessions, and FRCR tutorials.
Clinical radiology remains very much the heart and soul of UKRC. In 2013, there will be eight clinical
streams, each focusing on a particular body system or sub-speciality. There will be a strong emphasis
on teaching, with material suitable for FRCR candidates, for consultants wishing to refresh their
knowledge and for radiographers extending their practice. The full range of modalities will be covered,
from plain x-ray to PET-CT. Musculoskeletal imaging and trauma are particularly richly provided for this
year and our ‘hot topic’ sessions on imaging the obese patient and on revalidation are particularly likely
to appeal to radiologist colleagues. A special session on elite sports will review imaging input to the
London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and discuss what can be learnt for more commonplace
sports imaging.
As the NHS continues to change around us, our session on commissioning and AQP is likely to be
a highlight of the service delivery stream. Other sessions will have a strong focus on research and
innovation in practice. There will be a special session aimed at imaging nurses, and two radiation
protection masterclass tracks, focusing on IRMER and on RPS issues. Physics also features strongly
in the advances in technology stream, including a series of physics toolbox sessions and a strong MRI
theme offered in collaboration with BAMRR and ISMRM. Informatics sessions will address a range of
issues including procurement, radiological report quality, patient safety and, once again, innovation.
With such a great combination of venue and programme, UKRC 2013 is on course to be the best ever.
I look forward to welcoming you to share our vision for essential imaging in Liverpool this June.

Eponymous
lectures
The clinical programme encompasses a wide range of
imaging subspecialties. Specific streams cover numerous
aspects of radiology/medical imaging. A broad range
of speakers from the UK, Europe and North America
are delivering lectures. We have aimed for topics which
will be relevant to both novice and experienced imaging
health care workers. Sessions will contain summaries
of conditions/clinical situations, updates on imaging
developments, how experienced imagers handle cases
and some organisational and practical approaches.
In addition to didactic lectures there will be interactive
and practical sessions. In booked slots there will be
the opportunity to use workstations to review cases
in musculo-skeletal, cardiac, chest and neurological
imaging. In addition to case series for established
reporters there will be tutorials on FRCR topics/cases.

Service delivery
Victoria Brown
Vice President, Service Delivery
This has been a challenging but
exciting year and we have worked
hard to provide a programme that is
both supportive of best practice and
recognises the need for change.
Maryann Hardy
David Wyper
We have followed on from some of the themes from
last year which continue to play an important role in the
delivery of equitable care to patients such as seven day
services, and introduced new themes including service
improvement which will be pivotal in the increasingly
tough financial years ahead. We have also included a
new session on Patient and Public Engagement and
Experience (PPEE) and another on data collection and
benchmarking. We would like to stimulate thoughts and
debate and hope you will take some new ideas and
knowledge back to your teams and places of work.
We were extremely pleased at the success of the new
Imaging Nursing session which we have again included in
this year’s programme of events.
We look forward to welcoming you to the ACC in
Liverpool and hope you enjoy the programme.
Working party: Fiona Thow, Jeanne Scolding, Andy Beale
Audrey M Paterson
Imaging Informatics will again be focusing on PACS
delivery, which will continue to be one of the most
important issues over the next few years in the UK.
There will be a focus on PACS (procurement/replacement)
as well as the workflows that will complement PACS such
as how data can be shared via portals and in other ways.
A session to complement this discussing patient safety
issues for any new clinical information systems is a
session on health informatics education will also be
provided, looking at and discussing HI education at all
levels post qualification.
The need for radiation dose monitoring for the UK will
also be discussed and how this data can be integrated
into health informatics, as well as how radiologist
reporting can be improved.
Finally in these challenging times a round table session will
be offered on the recent NHS initiative to develop innovative
products and how these could be developed within Trusts.
Working party: Dave Harvey, Laurence Sutton
Advances in technology
Andy Rogers
Vice President, Advances in technology
In 2013 UKRC will offer sessions for all
tastes in its Advances in Technology
programme. Building on the successes
of last year, UKRC will host a series
of Radiation Protection Supervisor Master-classes to
enable colleagues in this role to stay abreast of current
thinking in key areas. In addition, and a new venture
this year, we will host Master-classes for colleagues
requiring expert tuition on the implementation of IRMER.
We also have a two sessions [Emerging international
issues in radiation protection along with a UK update]
aimed at aspiring Radiation Protection Advisers (RPA) or
those existing RPAs who require such sessions to renew
their RPA2000 certificates. There will also be a session
aimed at those considering how IT can support the
management of patient dosimetry, including presentations
from key software developers. There will be increased
offerings in MRI along with an exciting cross-profession
link to imaging the bariatric patient. At the very edge
of current knowledge and practice, we shall also be
hosting sessions for the use of Monte Carlo techniques
and Image J in supporting imaging scientists along with
a session on the latest in digital imaging. In short a very
varied and exciting set of opportunities. As Vice President
for Advances in Technology, I look forward to welcoming
you to Liverpool and sharing with you this content – we
shall all have plenty of ides to take back with us to help
meet the innovation agenda within healthcare.

The exhibition
e-Posters
In addition to the paper posters there will be a large number of e-posters
which can be accessed on site through a number of computer consoles,
or viewed at leisure after the event through the website or even on your
phone. Different posters will be featured daily.
Education on the stands
With over 80 exhibition stands, including the top companies in the
industry, this is the largest diagnostic imaging exhibition in the UK.
It provides a wealth of information for a multi-disciplinary audience,
a great opportunity to network, learn of all the latest developments,
source relevant product information and technical updates. The trade
exhibition is complimented by a large poster display, consoles to view
e-posters and access to the internet, a programme of education on
the stands, and a varied series of free satellite symposia in the two
exhibition lecture theatres.
Poster displays
There will be a display of nearly
200 posters from a variety of
disciplines. This vast source of latest
information will demonstrate cutting
edge research, service innovations,
results of local intervention schemes
and much much more. Each poster
presenter will be available during the
congress to discuss their work in
more detail. Each day one poster will
be featured as the poster of the day.
This popular initiative provides delegates and exhibition visitors with an opportunity
to gain an insight into the latest technologies and methods. Industry partners
provide short educational activities of 10-15 minutes duration on their stands.
Many will be granted CPD Now accreditation and are an easy way of updating
your CPD portfolio. Remember: access to the exhibition and these CPD
opportunities is free. The education on the stands programme will be released
nearer to the event. Check the website and app for up to date information.
Satellite symposia
There are two lecture theatres in the exhibition area which have a full free
programme of sessions to compliment the main scientific programme.
These sessions are open to all delegates including exhibition visitors,
providing an opportunity to get updates and gain CPD free of charge.
See the preliminary symposia programme on page 17. The symposia
programme is subject to change with many additional sessions to come –
please check the website and conference app for up-to-date details.
Mobile App
The UKRC is pleased to launch an app for your iPhone, android or iPad.
Just go to the marketplace or iTunes store to download. The app has up to date
programme information, speaker biographies, exhibitor and sponsor information,
general information and poster abstracts, all easily navigable. Build your own
“My UKRC” itinerary. Use the links to register, book accommodation. Please
note that Blackberrys and Kindles are not compatible this year.

Claudia Henschke
Professor of Radiology, Mount Sinai Medical Centre,
New York, USA
Dr Claudia Henschke is a Professor of Radiology and
heads the Lung and Cardiac Screening Program at the
Mount Sinai Medical Center. A pioneer and leading
expert in the field of diagnostic radiology, Dr Henschke has long believed
that smokers and former smokers should consider being tested with lowdose CT scans to detect lung cancer when a tumour is still small enough
to be cured. Dr Henschke has more than 20 years of clinical and research
experience in this area and, since 1991, has led city, state, national, and
international projects that have resulted in the diagnosis of some 800
lung cancers. She and her team have created a protocol that has set an
international standard for performing low-dose CT scans and managing
findings which require additional testing.
Her team has developed techniques that provide 3D growth assessment
of a lesion. Using these techniques lesion growth can be measured and
compared to the rate of growth seen in malignant tumours. This can help
distinguish those lesions that are benign from those that are malignant.
Dr Henschke received a M.S. in mathematical statistics from Southern
Methodist University and her PhD in mathematical statistics and computer
science in 1969 from the University of Georgia. She was awarded her
medical degree from Howard University in 1977. She completed her
radiology residency at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, Harvard Medical
School, and in 1981 was named to the faculty of the Department of
Radiology at Harvard Medical School. Dr Henschke was a Professor of
Radiology at Weill Cornell Medical College before joining Mount Sinai. Dr
Henschke has authored over 250 peer reviewed publications, two books
and more than 30 chapters in books.
