Description



Hello!

This month we are asking the question, how do doctors take pictures of the inner body? Medical imaging is commonly used to make sure that everything in the body is as it should be. It promotes high quality healthcare and can save lives. But how does it work? What are the most common imaging techniques used? How safe is it? Join us at Science in the Pub to find out about the physics of medical imaging used by doctors to look inside your body for your health.

Please join us for #SciPubMedImage on Friday 7th July at the Rob Roy Hotel (106 Halifax Street in the city). This event kicks off at 6:00 pm and will finish by approx. 7:30 pm (doors will be open from 5:30 pm for those who wish to arrive early for seat). The principal goal of SciPub is to make science engaging and accessible to the public. Each panel consists of three experts who deliver short, 10-15 minute presentations on their area of expertise and then discuss questions from the audience via a moderator. Panellists are selected primarily on their ability to effectively communicate science in an engaging and non-technical manner. SciPub is held in a pub so that scientists, aspiring scientists, and non-scientists can learn, discuss and think critically about hot topics in science.

We are pleased to announce our panellists for #SciPubMedImage are:

Dr Donald McRobbie - Chief Medical Physicist, Flinders Medical Centre

Dr Amanda Brason - Principal Physicist, South Australia Medical Imaging

Dr Luke Oakden-Rayner - Radiologist, University of Adelaide

Please take note. We endeavour to make your SciPub experience an enjoyable one. Although Eventbrite issues automated tickets, we do not check or collect tickets at the venue. The RSVP facility makes it easier for us to estimate numbers so that we can accommodate accordingly. RSVPing does not guarantee a seat. Doors are open from 5:30pm and due to the popularity of some past events, we would advise patrons to arrive early to avoid any disappointment. Thank you for your support.

We hope to see you there!
