Aspetar sheds light on latest radiography developments




(MENAFN - Gulf Times) Aspetar the Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Hospital — has held a symposium that explored topics related to radiography, its development and its evolving uses in the medical field given radiography's pivotal role in the development of the global medical industry.
The symposium was organised to mark World Radiography Day, which is celebrated on November 8 every year.
Held for the seventh consecutive year, the symposium consisted of four participant-led sessions and workshops, during which attendees, comprising radiology specialists and researchers from a number of local institutions, engaged directly with speakers through interactive Q & A panel discussions.
The sessions focused on the latest developments in the field of radiography in athlete screening.
It highlighted the important role of imaging in the patient pathway including in instances such as Anterior Cruciate Ligament surgical reconstruction for athletes and post-surgical aftercare, and recognising the influence of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in cardiac screening of athletes.
Participants also discussed the importance of radiation protection in Computed Tomography scans a diagnostic imaging test used to create detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels, recreated in 3D reconstruction.
Salwa Allenjawi, director of Medical Imaging at Aspetar, said: 'This annual symposium is yet another part of our continued efforts to share our developments and expertise, and contribute to the global sports medicine industry.
Medical screenings are vital to the health of the athlete and can identify pre-existing cardiovascular abnormalities and thereby reduce the potential for adverse events and loss of life due to Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD). MRI-based screening helps detect pre-existing heart defects and minimise the risk of SCD among athletes.
World Radiography Day is an annual event that promotes the role of medical imaging in modern healthcare.
It is celebrated on November 8 each year, and coincides with the anniversary of Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen's 1895 discovery of X-rays, which effectively laid down the foundation for the new medical discipline of radiography.
This symposium has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioners.
