Nuclear Medicine in Infection Imaging
Led by Dr John Buscombe, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge and President, British Nuclear Medicine Society
The COVID pandemic has reminded us that despite living in the antibiotic era infection remains an important cause of both ill health and death. This webinar will explore how functional imaging using PET-CT and SPET-CT can be used to identify and localise infection. The webinar will be given by Dr John Buscombe, currently President of the British Nuclear Medicine Society who has 30+ years of experience in this field.
- To understand the role of FDG PET imaging in patients with suspected infection
- To understand the role of labelled WBC imaging in patients with suspected infection

Suspected physical abuse in infants - What to look out for and what to do next
Led by Professor Amaka Offiah, Chai, European Society of Paediatric Radiology Child Abuse Task Force
Up to 1 in 14 UK children is physically abused. Radiology plays a key role, both for the medical diagnosis and in the legal management of inflicted injury in children. This webinar will discuss what imaging should be obtained and demonstrate the injuries that are suspicious of abuse. The webinar will be given by Professor Amaka C Offiah, currently Chair of the European Society of Paediatric Radiology Child Abuse Task Force, who has 20 years’ clinical and research experience in this field.
- To understand the fractures and fracture patterns that should raise suspicion of abuse in infants
- To become aware of the further imaging that should be performed in alignment with the RCR 2017 Guidelines, “The radiological investigation of suspected physical abuse”
Please note that this session will not be recorded due to the sensitive nature of the topic.
Fellows and members can watch recordings from our previous webinar series:
