My big screen debut!

I recently recorded a video for University Hospital Leicester's #EverybodyCounts campaign, along with my pharmacy colleague Jane Chivers. We talked about a new pathway for patients to be able to collect their prescribed Gastrografin from any branch of Lloydspharmacy in Leicestershire - making it a much more convenient process for a lot of patients. 

Have you ever watched yourself on video - for most people, including myself, its cringeworthy! The video is below, and click on the "CT colonography" link in the menu bar above for more information on how I perform these exams.

Revise Radiology : a fantastic new resource for the FRCR exams

I recently came across a new website called Revise Radiology. This is a resource aimed at providing revision cases for the anatomy component of the FRCR 1 and the rapid reporting component for the final FRCR (2b) exams. Currently, it is an image-only resource, with these exams being based on providing answers on individual images.
