Professor Patrick Brennan
(Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Sydney)
The current rate of technological development within diagnostic imaging is not unlike a century ago when X-rays were first described. Professor Brennan will discuss how his research career has been based on exploring the efficacy and safety of new innovations and will focus on two new but rapidly adopted technologies: digital X-ray acquisition and handheld mobile devices such as the iPhone or iPod Touch.
This lecture will also describe some of the work being done in the Faculty of Health Sciences that highlights the cautionary approach that should prevail each time a new innovation is introduced.
