Week of 5th August was my nominal R&D week so the majority of the time was spent working on my projects. The main one I put time into this week was collection of data for the Diagnostic Radiology Special Interest Group (DRSIG), of which I am have recently been invited to be a member. The project involves pulling together results from as many Level B QA tests across as many different standard x-ray tubes as possible. The point of this project is to gather evidence on the tests as described in IPEM report 91 to decide if there should be any change to the tests or the recommended tolerances.
My other event of note was a fantastic meeting with one of our Trusts to discuss the areas of research they would like to be involved in and how medical physics could contribute / assist. It was refreshing to see a Trust so keen to be involved in research that will directly benefit patients either with a reduction in dose, an improvement in image quality or a combination of both.
