Dr Phil Woolfall
Clinical Director of Radiology
North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust

We’re delighted to welcome Dr Phil Woolfall to the Café for what promises to be a very interesting evening.

Phil says – modern healthcare is heavily dependent on medical imaging. This talk will take a look at the most devastating diseases affecting the UK population and demonstrate the central role that imaging plays in their diagnosis and treatment. We will look at everything from the humble x-ray through to the most modern CT, MRI, and PET-CT scans. We will also examine what future technology will bring to medical imaging and how artificial intelligence is already being used to improve safety and efficiency.
