  • Ultrasound scan can diagnose prostate cancer

    30 Mar 2022 Maxine Myers - Imperial College London
    An ultrasound scan can be used to detect cases of prostate cancer, according to new research.
  • Over the course of the next 3 years, the NHS will receive £248 million to digitise diagnostics and help tackle issues arisen from the pandemic such as increased patient waiting lists.  
  • Channel 4’s Dispatches programme has found that scanners in many trusts are more than 10 years old and are putting patients at risk. There is also an existing shortage of doctors who are qualified to diagnose and treat disease and injuries using medical imaging scanners, which could triple by 2030.

  • After a difficult 18 months, the new organisers of the Oncology Convention, Medical Imaging Convention and Neuro Convention couldn’t be more pleased to welcome you back to the UK’s leading events for clinical oncology, medical imaging and neurology.  
  • Since the 1950s, doctors have used low-intensity ultrasound as a medical imaging tool. Now, experts at the University of Waterloo are utilising and extending models that help capture how high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) can work on a cellular level.

  • After extensive consultation with the government and venues across the UK, ROAR B2B are pleased to confirm what safety regulations will be in place for Medical Imaging Convention 2021. Over the two days, we will have 40 CPD-accredited seminars to choose from, with regular cleaning in between talks to ensure we keep to safety standards, 50 exhibitors to meet with larger walkways for 2021 to ensure greater access and regular cleaning done in close-contact areas such as the Networking Area. Please read the guidance below.

  • The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging held their annul meeting earlier this month which provided some interesting insights on new radiotracer studies and clinical trials. We take a look at the new methods and what the results mean.

  • Determining the malignancy risk of pulmonary nodes is notoriously difficult. However, new research from Kiran Vaidhya Venkadesh has shown that the use of a deep learning algorithm can be very valuable in the estimation of pulmonary nodules detected via screening CT. This new development could really help to improve outcomes for patients being screened for lung cancer. 
  • ROAR B2B are pleased to reveal that on the 15th and 16th of September, Medical Imaging Convention will return to the physical space at the Birmingham NEC. Through conversations with speakers, visitors and exhibitors, they have determined that there is a large appetite for a return to face-to-face events. 
  • On World Health Day (April the 7th), the World Health Organisation (WHO) decided to focus on medical inequity. Minority groups struggle to receive the same level of medical care and treatment as those who are the majority, meaning that a person’s access to care and the outcomes they receive may be negatively impacted due to their race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexuality or other factors outside of their control. The worst cases of this will result in the needless loss of death. In order to help raise awareness for the issue, we wrote an article about it to mark World Health Day. 
  • The technology that enables artificial intelligence (AI) is improving rapidly, with more and more applications being developed all the time. The medical field is no different, with new AI solutions being integrated in many areas, particularly imaging. To measure this trend, the American College of Radiology conducted a survey to determine the extent to which AI solutions were being adopted among radiologists. 
  • The idea of using real-time MRI scans to guide a proton beam while a patient undergoes proton therapy is one which might sound like a dream come true to some imaging departments. Such technology would enable a significant increase in the quality of treatment provided – not to mention all the time which could be saved. But to many it might seem as though it were just that: a dream. However, new developments from OncoRay in Dresden may suggest otherwise. 
  • World Health Day 7th April - AI&ML

    07 Apr 2021 Seamus Daley-Dee

    New technology is constantly being trialled and introduced into our healthcare systems across the globe in the form of AI and machine learning models. With this new technology, comes new challenges including the way we record data and how it’s stored. On World Health Day, with this year’s theme to build a fairer and healthier world, we take a look at AI and machine learning models and analyse whether this new technology is helping to build a fairer and healthier world.  

  • Covid-focused AI – how useful is it?

    31 Mar 2021 Seamus Daley-Dee
    Since the beginning of the pandemic, AI and machine learning technologies have had an increasing say in how we diagnose patients and what treatments can be offered as a result. Most of the stories we have seen in the last year have been largely positive but now a team of academic researchers in the UK say different.  
  • On the 11th of March, we were proud to host Adrian Trinidade’s talk “Changing Imaging Strategy During a Pandemic” which was sponsored by Philips and included as part of our virtual Medical Imaging Convention. As the Operational Lead at Whittington Hospital, Adrian found himself in a very difficult position when a national pandemic was announced in March of 2020. Despite the very difficult and unknown territory which lied ahead, Adrian was able to revise his hospital’s imaging strategy and adapt with the times.  
  • Over the last 10 years, countries within the Middle East have heavily invested in digital technology for its healthcare systems. Now, with the impact of Coronavirus, the investment is starting to pay off.  

  • A multidisciplinary research team from the University of Oulu have developed a new imaging technology which allows them to reveal the skin complications of diabetes mellitus. 
  • 2020 was the year dominated by COVID. In some way or another we have all been affected by the virus and whilst 2021 brings much optimism with vaccine announcements, COVID still presents itself as the biggest issue radiology is facing currently.  
  • With AI and machine learning having an increasing importance on the way we manage our healthcare systems. What new developments can we look forward to?  
  • Medical Imaging Convention have taken the difficult decision to postpone the event to the 15th and 16th of September 2021.
