UKRC 2013 President’s welcome Who should attend? Radiologists Radiographers Medical Physicists Sonographers PACS and IT managers Commissioners Imaging Service Managers Clinical Engineers Procurement Managers Oncologists Industrialists Imaging Academics Imaging Nurses Student and Trainees 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. Dr Stephen Keevil Congress President, UKRC 2013 Conference organisers Profile Productions Ltd Northumberland House, 11 The Pavement, Popes Lane, London, W5 4NG t.+44 (0)20 8832 7311 f.+44 (0)20 8832 7301 firstname.lastname@example.org w.www.ukrc.org.uk 2 REGISTER ONLINE: WWW.UKRC.ORG.UK About the streams Informatics Clinical Neelam Dugar and Anant Patel Vice Presidents, Imaging Informatics Iain Lyburn and Antony Maxwell Vice Presidents, Clinical Keynote speakers Claudia Henschke Stephen Trenkner 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. Working parties: Neuro: Calvin Soh; Paediatrics: Amaka Offiah; Obs & Gynae: Julia Hillier; Cardiac: Stephen Harden; Uro: William Torreggiani; Breast: Sarah Vinnicombe; GI: Niall Power; MSK: Phil Hughes; Chest: Sue Kearney; Interventional and trauma: Mark Thornton 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.

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. Barium is not dead: barium is state of the art!

Following a fellowship in gastrointestinal radiology at the University of Pennsylvania in 1982-1983, he has worked in the field of gastrointestinal radiology for 30 years. His main interests are fluoroscopy and CT of the abdomen and pelvis as it relates to the luminal GI tract. He has received teaching awards at the University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, and Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Dr Trenkner enjoys biking, running, tennis, photography, and The Beatles.
