Four final year Bruneian students from University of Exeter were awarded a Dean’s fund from the university to attend the UK Radiological Congress and Radiation and Oncology Congress (UKRC) held at the Manchester Convention Centre from June 12 to 14.

 

The students were rewarded with a place in the congress to showcase their university research project poster – titled ‘ The effect of Exposure Index (EI) on the subjective analysis of image quality’ – after it was chosen as runner up (2nd place) out of 150 poster submissions in the ‘best research/scientific poster’ category by the UKRC committee.

 

The theme for UKRC this year focused on how new technologies and techniques were adopted within radiological imaging and radiation oncology, to improve and optimize patient care and experience.

 

The congress is an annual event co-hosted by the UKRC and UKRO presidents, consisting a three-day multidisciplinary scientific conference and technical exhibitions participated by thousands from across the medical imaging field to showcase state-of-the-art equipment and services.

 

The runner-up prize was presented to the students by Maryann Hardy (UKRC president) and Professor Robert Winston (Research Professor in Imperial College London) at the end of the closing ceremony on June 14.

 

At the congress, the four students gained valuable insight and knowledge from the myriad research findings and exhibits displayed by the other participants. The students were also made aware of the latest technological advancements in radiology available to and used in UK hospitals – such as different types of equipment – and how it can be utilised to improve service efficiency. These new technologies are quite possible in the future for radiographers not just in the UK, but those in Brunei as well.

 

The students’ interaction with radiographers from different backgrounds (such as CT radiographers, MRI radiographers and sonographers) could pave a path for improved networking and collaboration between the UK and Brunei radiographers, allowing for the exchange of new ideas to improve healthcare. – Text and Photos by Nur Rabi’atul ‘Adawiyah Pengiran Haji Zulkifli.
