Taking place from 0930 to 1600 via Zoom, there will be a host of speakers from across the UK sharing their experiences and perspectives on research in radiography. There will be the opportunity to engage with the speakers, ask questions and reflect on the discussions, whilst considering applications to your practice.

The event is endorsed by SoR and will offer a CPD opportunity for attendees to develop their knowledge of research opportunities within radiology.

Book now to confirm your place. A full list of speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.

World Radiography Day 

World Radiography Day marks the anniversary of the discovery of x-radiation by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895.

Radiographers worldwide can use the day and the days around the date to promote radiography as a career, as a vital contribution to modern healthcare, and as an opportunity to increase public awareness of diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy.

Speaker introductions

Alex Novak

Alex Novak is a Consultant in Emergency Medicine and Ambulatory Care at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and is the Emergency Department research lead. He is Chair of the Thames Valley Emergency medicine Research Network (TAVERN), and of the Acute, Critical and Emergency Care Research Oversight Committee (ACE-CROC) for the Trust, and is a Steering Committee member of the newly-formed Academic Centre for Urgent and Emergency Care (ACUTECare). He was awarded Royal College of Emergency Medicine Principal Investigator of the Year 2020, and a broad portfolio of research interests, including the development and evaluation of AI-enhanced imaging in acute healthcare settings.   

Dr Emma Hyde

Dr Emma Hyde is a qualified HCPC registered diagnostic radiographer with ten years of experience working in clinical practice and 15 years experience of working in higher education. She is currently an Associate Professor in Diagnostic Imaging and Head of Diagnostic Imaging, Operating Department Practice & Osteopathy at the University of Derby. Emma is passionate about person-centred care, driven by a desire to improve people’s experiences of health and social care settings. Emma uses her role as an educator to positively influence students to be person-centred in their approaches and has carried out large-scale research into concepts of person-centred care within her profession of diagnostic radiography.

Avianna Laws

Avianna is Clinical Research Operations Manager for Oxford University NHS Foundations Trust.

Having worked for the NHS for almost a decade, Avianna experienced some of the delays and burdens on our healthcare system first-hand. Since joining the team at NCIMI, it has given her the opportunity to work with like-minded individuals who all share the same passion to be at the forefront of a new field in healthcare imaging that could alleviate some of these pressures.

Avianna is especially passionate about governing the appropriate and ethical use of patient data, and the clinical, social and economic value of NHS patient data. 

Avneet Gill

Avneet is Senior Research Radiographer at Oxford University NHS Foundations Trust.

One of the main projects she has been working on with NCIMI has involved curating an image dataset for GEHC for a clinical reader study component of larger research. This reader study provides a place for GEHC to test their AI algorithm which identifies pneumothoraces on Chest X-Rays. This was something that she finds very interesting, as she knew how much (especially in an ED setting), that this would impact the patient pathway. 

Nick Woznitza

Nick is an established consultant radiographer and clinical academic. He has a track record of bridging clinical practice, academia and governance in the NHS and private sector. Nick holds advisory roles in the NHS and independent sector and is a peer reviewer for NHSx AAC programme and several high-profile journals. Nick brings the experience of generating high-quality research evidence to underpin and support change, ensuring robust and sustainable solutions are implemented. 

Professor Fergus Gleeson

Professor Fergus Gleeson is Head of Academic Radiology in Oxford and leads the Oxford Radiology Research Unit with a joint NHS and University appointment.  

He has published over 200 peer review papers, been Editor of the British Journal of Radiology, awarded the Barclay medal from the British Institute of Radiology, and the Roentgen Professor by the Royal College of Radiologists, and was previously a member of the Council of the Royal College of Radiologists and Divisional Director for the Oxford University Hospitals NHS FT, and is President of the European Society of Thoracic Imaging.  

His research into Long COVID using Xenon gas and MRI scans has identified persistent damage to the lungs of COVID-19 patients that wasn’t detected by routine CT scans and clinical tests.
