Leeds medical imaging academics exhibit innovative simulation software in Chicago

Andrew Davies and Stephen Kengyelics, two members of our medical imaging lecturing team, attended the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) at the end of 2018 to showcase their innovative X-ray imaging simulator software which they have developed for student education.

RSNA is an international society of radiologists, medical physicists and other medical professionals with more than 54,000 members across the globe and hosts one of the world’s largest annual medical meetings.

This week-long event is held in Chicago and starts on the last Sunday of November each year. The society also publishes two peer-reviewed journals: Radiology - offering radiology research and reviews, and RadioGraphics - dedicated to continuing education in radiology.

 This was the perfect forum to present our X-ray simulator software and to explain how we are currently using it in the classroom to enhance student learning. We were very pleased to receive very positive reactions from healthcare educators from around the globe.

Dr Stephen Kengyelics – Deputy Programme Lead MSc Medical Imaging

At the University of Leeds we are committed to providing high quality teaching using a range of innovative interactive approaches that include software simulation and virtual reality.

The suite of software simulates the operation of a number X-ray imaging modalities including radiography, mammography, computed tomography and cardiovascular imaging systems.
