The ImPACT group - which stands for Imaging Performance Assessment of CT scanners - is part of the Imaging Physics Section of the Medical Physics Department at St George's Hospital, Tooting, London . Members of our department were even involved in early work on the first EMI CT scanner at nearby Atkinson Morley's Hospital in the early 1970s!
ImPACT's main work has included
- Technical evaluation of the imaging and dose performance of CT scanners.
- User evaluation of the overall CT system function.
- Dose and image quality optimisation
- Dose issue in CT
- Consultancy for CT scanner purchases
- Educational courses
- Market guides
These evaluations are objective, independent and comparative. ImPACT's test procedures are well established and widely accepted. Results are published in our evaluation reports.
