About this Event

Sunday 17th October 2021

The very popular one day course covering the fundamental basics of Radiology I.T., including PACS, RIS and their interactions with wider clinical applications such as EPR, electronic requesting etc. The basics of HL7 and DICOM will be introduced at a level suitable for radiographers and those with minimal or no prior experience of PACS. Applications of the technology along with current hot topics will be discussed.

Training is delivered by NHS PACS Managers, recognised as experts in the field.

Venue: Manchester (due to demand, venues are allocated in groups)

This subsidised non-profit course is tailored for those with an interest but minimal or no prior formal knowledge of PACS, including Radiographers, Students, PACS Administrators, I.T. Support or other interested parties. Topics will be presented from the UK perspective (both NHS and private). Further courses cover Intermediate (2 days) and Advanced levels (3 days) and are listed in the 'providers other courses' section.


Early booking: £50. Attendance certificate and online verification service: £2.50.

Discounted copy of official 'Clark's PACS, RIS & Imaging Informatics' course textbook also available.

Due to high demand (and the low cost!), reservations or purchase orders aren't possible for this session I'm afraid.


Q: Where should I book accommodation? A: All venues will be close to the Manchester Central exhibition centre.

Q: Is parking available at the venue/s? A: Yes, all venues are close to public car parking (however, local costs may apply).

Q: Why multiple venues? A: Due to the high popularity of the training and wide range of professions attending, groups are split into similar professions - NHS Radiography, Dentistry, Veterinarian, Suppliers etc.). With limited room choices in smaller training centres, venues are allocated dependant on group sizes, each with their own trainer. Groups are allocated around two weeks prior to the session - please await an email around this time to the address registered with Eventbrite (all correspondence is routed through the Eventbrite system).

Q: Is it possible to live-stream abroad? A: Yes, we can route the live-stream internationally, either live or delayed for timezone requirements.

Q: Is this session suitable for supplier / vendor staff to attend for personal CPD? A: Yes, supplier staff are welcome at the same price. We can also live-stream to a private 'all company' room if you have 5+ attendees from the same team / division / company. Contact us directly for this option as costs vary depending on venue and spaces available. Our trainers use talkback earpieces to interact with all groups in the same way as the 'live' audience.

Q: Is lunch included? A: Some sessions include a restaurant lunch provided by our training supporters (for NHS staff). We don't know until nearer the time (logistics around this are tricky!). Please see your venue information email for details nearer the time.
