6 more research publications

We are delighted to announce that staff and associates from the Directorate of Diagnostic Radiography have had 6 more research papers accepted for publication. They may appear  an eclectic mix but represent  two of the three key themes, around which, the Diagnostic Imaging Research Programme is focused: x-ray dose optimisation and breast cancer mammographic imaging. You can read more about the DIRP here.

Professor Peter Hogg, DIRP Lead

The DIRP is lead by Professor Peter Hogg and you can watch what he has to say about developing a strategy to support a developing set of radiography researchers in one of our earlier blogs.
