Collaborative effort between School of Radiography staff and students leads to higher engagement and new research articles.

Therapeutic Radiography

School of Radiography staff and students have worked together to publish two articles in leading trade journals.  The School sees this as an excellent way of both engaging students and capitalising on academic work produced within the courses.

Holly Amos, as a second year diagnostic radiography student (now third year), worked together with Associate Professor Sherril Spencer to publish her article on cervical carcinoma published in a recent issue of Imaging and Therapy Practice.

Holly said: “I was delighted when I saw our article in print, and am very grateful to Sherril for the time she spent helping to get it ready for publication”.

Similarly, alumnus Eric Pang Pei Ping, who is now a therapeutic radiographer in the Division of Radiation Oncology, National Cancer Centre, Singapore worked together with Senior Lecturer Julie Hendry. They have had an article; ‘An assessment of the magnitude of intra-fraction movement of head-and-neck IMRT cases and its implication on the action-level of the imaging protocol’ published in the journal of Radiotherapy and Oncology.

Eric said: “I truly think I’ve benefited substantially from the Kingston University MSc Oncology Practice programme. With special thanks to Julie, the article was finally published”.
