Activity Case Study 1: Dr Heather Williams
A STEMNET resource describing how STEM Ambassador, Dr Heather Williams, explained the physics behind CT imaging and nuclear medicine to GCSE and A Level students.
In an interactive lecture, Heather gave examples of a coronary angiography and a CT scan. She described how each works and the differences between them. She also talked about how and why Nuclear Medicine imaging is used to trace the blood supply to the heart.
“There are always at least a couple of students that pick up and grasp what you have said. As a STEM Ambassador, if you can connect with just one, it is all worthwhile."
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
