INVITATION TO INTRODUCTORY LECTURE

Dosimetry and Medical Image Quality in Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)

by Dr Anastasia Hadjiconstanti, Assistant Professor, Department of Basic and Clinical Sciences, University of Nicosia Medical School

ERCP is a procedure to diagnose and treat problems in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas. It combines X-ray and the use of an endoscope.  Dr Hadjiconstanti will present her doctoral research where the level of patient radiation doses during ERCP procedure were examined.  She will also discuss Nuclear Medicine issues regarding the optimisation of the diagnostic value of post-surgical I-123 SPECT thyroid imaging and the application of patient-specific dosimetry for radioiodine ablation of thyroid remnants in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC).
