He was recently on an international standards organisation IEC working group to represent the UK in a project looking at the use of dose data held in digital imaging modalities along with being a member of an ICRP working group that has published a report on Diagnostic Reference Levels.
He is also a full member of the IEC Maintenance Team for interventional x-ray equipment. His current research interests are observer studies, skin dose assessment and optimisation in interventional cardiology and radiology.
Integrating interventional procedure data to improve clinician feedback – new technology gains maturity
Nottingham has utilised a rich source of data to improve cardiologist radiation safety awareness and culture. The technology employed is the Philips DoseWise Portal linked to DoseAware radiation dosimeters. We developed a reporting tool that allows clinicians to see their performance in key areas – this continual feedback allows continuous scrutiny on radiation and technique issues. It has allowed for discussions with trainees regarding radiation protection and clinical technique.
