SectrainCoventry

Full Field Digital Mammography Systems are being evaluated for use in the NHS Breast Screening Programme in the UK. As part of this evaluation, the different companies were invited to take part in a comprehensive evaluation of the mammography units, including medical physics and radiographic aspects. Swedish Company, SECTRA (www.sectra.se/medical) are one of the major companies who have had their equipment evaluated for the NHS Breast Screening Programme in the UK. Released as publication 0601, a PDF is available both on the RCRBG website (members section) and the NHSBSP website (cancerscreening.org.uk) I interviewed Matt Wallis at the recent Royal College of Radiologists Breast Group Annual Scientific Meeting in Edinburgh about the NHSBSP Evaluation of the SECTRA Microdose FFDM equipment in a mobile van at Coventry and Warwickshire Hospital. © Dr Chris Flowers Nov 2006

Immune Evasion of Cancer

This diagram was created to summarise my dissertation. It shows numerous methods of immune evasion methods of a cancer cell. I did a lot of research around this subject and never found a diagram that brought this number of methods together, so created one.

Designer Babies - Physiology and Ethics

An essay I wrote for my course, with which I received an Honours grade (75%). I have an interest in Medical Ethics, and this essay discusses the possible physiology and ethics surrounding the controversial topic. **Introduction** (taken from the essay): My topic is designer babies. A designer baby is defined by the Oxford Dictionary of English as, “a baby whose genetic make-up has been selected in order to eradicate a particular defect, or to ensure that a particular gene is present” (1). In this essay, I shall be exploring the arguments and ideas surrounding the selection of a baby’s genes, which in modern times has become a highly controversial subject. This essay will start by describing the methods by which designer babies may be produced, namely pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and pro-nuclear transfer, also coined the ‘three-parent baby’ by some (2). Once these procedures have been presented, ethical considerations forming both sides of the debate will be discussed. Whilst the typical argument used is ‘autonomy vs. playing god’, other ideas include whether such procedures will have a drastic effect on the future, and change the world as we know it, as suggested in the science-fiction film Gattaca (3). The ‘nature vs. nurture’ debate is also described: whether we are defined by our genes as shown in Gattaca, or if the environmental influence we are subjected to can cause our genotype to be negligible, i.e. our genes have no impact on our traits; personality, looks etc. The expectations placed upon our offspring; the definition of disease and disability; the fear of the rate of medical development – will all be discussed in this essay. The conclusion will summarise the arguments of both sides, and will attempt to answer the following question: should we be allowed to design our babies?

Two Videos Showing Fluoroscopy and Animation of the TAVI Procedure

Fluoroscopy with Videography Showing Deployment of the Valve: The valve is deployed during rapid right ventricular pacing. The crimped valve and support frame are expanded with underlying balloon inflation. Also seen are the transesophageal echocardiography probe and the temporary right ventricular pacing lead. Animation of the Complete Transfemoral Transcatheter Aortic-Valve Implantation (TAVI) Procedure: The procedure for transfemoral TAVI involves insertion of the sheath through the femoral artery, retrograde balloon aortic valvuloplasty, advancement of the TAVI system across the aortic valve, and subsequent deployment of the valve and support frame.
