David Heatley, Chief Scientist, Scannerfutures Ltd

"Beyond X-rays in medical scanning - what comes next?"

X-ray CT scanners are widely used in public and private healthcare.  Typically they are large expensive installations and the use of X-rays carries a certain risk.  Scannerfutures is developing novel ways to use low intensity Radio Frequency (RF) waves as a safer alternative to X-rays in medical scanning.  Not only is RF scanning intrinsically safer, it also has the potential to be significantly less costly than X-ray CT in terms of capital and operating expenditure, and it lends itself to a simple compact construction that can be portable.  RF scanning therefore has the potential to be much more widely deployed across the health sector than current scanning systems, thereby reducing waiting times as well as reaching out into local communities through village hospitals, GP surgeries, health centres and mobile units.  This talk will outline some of the applications of RF scanning in healthcare that build upon these attributes.
