Meetings » Ninth CTUG Meeting

Ninth CT users group meeting

The Ninth CT Users group meeting was held on 23rd October 2007, at the Postgraduate Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.

Our invited speaker for this year's meeting was Dr Stephen Golding, Consultant Radiologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. Dr Golding is a rare breed of radiologist - one who is willing to admit in public that he is interested in radiation protection. Dr Golding is the one UK-based radiologist who co-authored the 2004 CT Quality Criteria, and maintains an active research interest in CT safety and efficacy.
