First week of my placement at Canterbury and Kent Hospital

Feed URL:

On the first day I was introduced to other members of staff and shown the general workings of a nuclear medicine department.  For the next few days we went over lots (and lots!) of health and safety relating to working with and around radioactive substances.  I spent the rest of my time reading up on the topics surrounding my research such as gastric emptying tests and gastroparesis.
At the end of the week I met with Dr Gordon Ellul who I would be conducting my research with and began to familiarise myself with ImageJ, the software I would be using.
The aim of the project is to gain more information from the images obtained from gastric emptying scintigraphy without altering or lengthening the procedure for patients.
