MTL Shares Technical Expertise at the Current Problems of Pediatric Radiology conference (Tashkent, Uzbekistan)
The international conference titled Current Problems of Pediatric Radiology was held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan on November 2019. Organized by Tashkent Pediatric Medical Institute and Uzbekistan Society for Radiology, the event brought together healthcare professionals from all over the world, including Uzbekistan, Russia, Australia, India, and Germany.
The discussion was focused on improving patient care through better and more accurate diagnosis. As pediatric imaging is being transformed and modernized, healthcare facilities are taking advantage of state-of-the-art equipment and modern diagnostic approaches in all fields of imaging, from ultrasound and x-ray to CT and MRI. Requirements for radiologists’ professional skills are dramatically growing. With this in mind, experts in medical imaging united to share knowledge and experience, learn from their colleagues and discuss ways for improving pediatric x-ray diagnostics in their home countries.
The conference agenda included speeches delivered by experts from around the globe, plenary and breakout sessions, and online workshops. The MTL speaker presented pediatric x-ray equipment, including special technical requirements to be applied to these types of systems as well as software for x-ray diagnostics of younger patients. The speaker specifically referred to the use of techniques such as tomosynthesis, dual energy x-ray imaging and panoramic imaging for better and more precise diagnosis in pediatrics. He explained how MTL's pediatric x-ray equipment is designed with children's needs in mind: it allows for obtaining clearer images even at the shortest exposures, as it is more difficult for a child to keep still while an image is being performed, and keeps exposure doses as low as possible, protecting the smallest patients from overexposure.
