Our recent two-day oncological imaging course, organised in association with Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, has received glowing feedback from delegates.

The event was attended by 59 delegates and took place at the Royal College of Radiologists in Holborn on Friday 25 October and on Saturday 26 October at Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood respectively. Attendees included radiologists and oncologists, trainees, diagnostic and therapy radiographers and allied professionals.

The first day was radiologist-led and focused on imaging for different tumour types, with interactive case-based lectures and discussions, delivered jointly by experts from clinical radiology and oncology, highlighting key learning points from both disciplines.

Day 2 was radiographer-led and focused on understanding and consolidating the roles of diagnostic radiology and radiotherapy in oncology patients' treatment planning through to delivery, presented jointly by specialist diagnostic and therapy radiographers.

Anonymous delegate feedback included:

  • “Great to be taught by the people doing the job, who are very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
  • “All talks very good - some really excellent. Really enjoyed the day.
  • “I thought excellent to have joint presentations with oncologists and radiologists. I learned a lot.
  • “Good breadth and depth for MDT style meeting.
  • “Fascinating and valuable insight into different applications of imaging for oncology.
  • “Good speakers”.

On average, the delegates gave both days a rating between 8 and 9 out of 10.
