Lecture synopsis

Imaging has become a central pillar in the detection and treatment planning of many patients facing cancer.  Some imaging techniques are widely recognised in our communities, such as screening for detection of early breast cancer.  However, over the last two decades, there has been an explosion of imaging techniques that have fundamentally changed the way cancer treatments are selected and planned.  Imaging techniques have developed hand in hand with innovations in surgery, radiation therapy and precision drug development to allow better outcomes for individual patients. These exciting developments shine hope in times of great challenges for the NHS.

We are delighted to welcome
