Karen Eley awarded 1st prize for best oral presentation at the European Society of Head & Neck Radiology in Leipzig, Germany

Karen was awarded the 1st prize for best oral presentation at the European Society of Head & Neck Radiology in Leipzig, Germany (13-15th September 2012). This was for her oral presentation entitled “Craniosynostosis and “Black Bone” MRI: An alternative to CT”, an aspect of her doctoral research project.

Karen's DPhil has explored the potential of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in imaging the craniofacial skeleton, thus providing a non-ionising alternative to Computed Tomography. This has included the development of the “Black Bone” sequence, application of the sequence to children with craniosynostosis, cephalometric analysis, and methods to create 3D rendered images and anatomical models of the craniofacial skeleton.

The conference provided an excellent opportunity to showcase her work and further develop collaborations within Europe and further afield. The prizes for best oral and poster presentation were announced at the conference dinner and presented by the President of the Society. My prize consisted of a certificate and €750. (
