  • Veterinary Sales Executive Interview :: Medray, Dublin, Ireland
    to announce the employment of Emily Connor B Sc VN RVN to cover the west of Ireland as a Veterinary Sales Executive How did you come to work as a Veterinary Sales Executive I had been in practice for about 6 years and decided that I would like to try something new but I still wanted to stay in the Veterinary industry if I could From chatting to veterinary sales reps on a daily basis I had a basic understanding of what the role involved I decided to look into it as a career prospect and spoke to a few sales reps to see what the job entailed in more detail I found this gave me a realistic idea of the role which is hard work but can be very rewarding I spoke to Karen from Medray at the IVNA congress and was blown away by her enthusiasm for the job So when the opportunity arose with Medray I went for it What do you like most about your job so far I love being out on the road and meeting new people no two days are the same I enjoy driving and because I am based in the West of Ireland I get to drive through some of the most fantastic countryside every day What if anything have you found challenging I have become great friends with my Sat Nav and Google maps I find it can be a bit of a challenge working out where all the practices are and planning my route every day so that I don t pass anyone by or leave anyone out Could you describe a typical working day As I know from the night before what practices I want to visit each day I roughly try to do it either by city or county I plan my route the night before and have all my practice addresses and contact numbers written out I try to get on the road as early as possible so depending on where I m travelling to I could be up as early as 5am I phone each practice first to organise an appointment if possible or just to let them know I am in the area I have all my various special offers and information leaflets organised for each practice depending on what their needs may be I try to get to as many practices as possible each day and I am usually home by 6 or 7 each evening What aspect of Veterinary Nursing do you think most prepared you for this role I find the fact I have used a lot of the equipment myself is of huge benefit to me It makes me more confident when chatting about a product to a client What do you miss most about veterinary practice I do miss the hands on experience with the animals but luckily I have a very busy Wire Fox Terrier at home who keeps me on my toes Home Digital Radiology Radiology Supplies

  • UNCOMPROMISED QUALITY: BONE SUPPRESSION AND CHEST X-RAY IMAGES :: Medray, Dublin, Ireland
    any part of a radiologist s job is easy but there are some aspects of their work that pose greater challenges than others The interpretation of chest X rays the most common way to screen and diagnose lung diseases is one of those tasks that can often frustrate a radiologist The average radiologist has probably viewed thousands of chest X rays over the course of a career and is well acquainted with the challenges they pose A traditional 2 D image of the chest will include all of the different bones surrounding the patient s chest cavity often obscuring the lungs There are ways to see around the bones but these systems often require the use of large imagining equipment that make it difficult to get an image of an immobile patient The bone suppression software can potentially improve the detection of both lung nodules and pneumothorax The recent FDA approved Carestream Bone Suppression Software now gives radiologists a better solution for chest X rays a clear image of the lungs without the expense of difficulties of a full 3 D image Employing machine learning and pattern recognition technologies the software accurately detects a patient s ribs and clavicle structure and suppress these structures on the X ray image giving the radiologist an unobstructed view of the lung tissue By focusing on the ribs and clavicle the two most distracting bone structures the software provides a high quality clear image that stays as close as possible to the quality of the original image Five board certified radiologists put the bone suppression software to the test They were asked to interpret a series of chest x rays with and without the bone suppression software and to rate any change they may have noticed In studies measuring both lung nodule detection and pneumothorax detection the radiologists recorded a statistically significant increase in detection sensitivity with no significant increase in false positives when using Carestream s bone suppression software On average the radiologists who participated in the study reported being 58 more confident in their ability to accurately diagnose patients when presented with the images generated by Carestream s software In addition to the advantages of image interpretation the bone suppression software works in tandem with traditional 2 D x rays Therefore there is no need to subject a patient to any additional radiation Further thanks to the portability of 2 D x ray systems such as Carestream s DRX Revolution ICU patients no longer need to be physically brought to imaging equipment in order to get a reliable chest x ray a reliable chest x ray can be taken right in the patient s room Radiologists should not be forced to compromise between image quality and practicality when it comes to the health of their patients Applications such as the bone suppression software are designed to help alleviate the need for compromise by providing a high quality low dose image in a manner that is efficient and practical for both radiologists and
