The Diagnosis & Remedies of Image Artefacts in Radiographic Imaging - Dr. Daniel Sandoval

Daniel Sandoval is certified by the American Board of Radiology in Diagnostic Imaging Physics and holds an MS and PhD in Nuclear Engineering from the University of New Mexico (UNM).  Dr. Sandoval has been a practicing Medical Physicist for the UNM Department of Radiology in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, since 2008.  His research includes work with the New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator in post-mortem imaging and dosimetry.  He has been a member of and contributor to the International Society for Forensic Radiology and Imaging (ISFRI) since May 2014.


Abstract:

Radiographic artefacts tend to be common place both in the clinic and in a post-mortem setting. Artefacts can be sorted into three categories: Physics based, equipment based, or subject based. Artefacts can degrade image quality, affect diagnosis or findings, or be a symptom of equipment or process issues. This talk will focus on identification of common and uncommon artefacts associated with radiographic imaging. Attendees will discuss how to perform basic troubleshooting steps on artefact identification and correction.
