Dr Heather Williams
The Christie Hospital
Dr Heather Williams is a Principal Medical Physicist for Nuclear Medicine at The Christie Hospital and honorary Lecturer at the University of Manchester, focussing on teaching imaging physics and positron emission tomography (PET) research. Heather is also a Director of ScienceGrrl, STEMNET ambassador, and active member of the IPEM Nuclear Medicine Special Interest Group and IoP Women in Physics Group committees. Heather also likes standing up and talking about science, and encouraging others (particularly women) to do so. When she''s not busy with all that, Heather enjoys running, hiking and introducing her sons to the wonders of the universe, often at the same time.
State of the Art Positron Emission Tomography
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) provides 3D maps of tissue function which are used routinely for diagnosis and response assessment in oncology, and to a lesser extent, cardiology and neurology. The technology required to capture these images is constantly in development. In this seminar, Heather sums up recent innovations in PET and how they are expected to benefit patients.
