You have null days left.

Description

This session will cover most of the important aspects of the plain chest film or chest x-ray (CXR) in the neonate and smaller infant with cardiac disease. There is an emphasis on observations that can be made better on radiography than on echocardiography.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Discuss the contribution and limitations of plain radiographs in assessing congenital cardiac disease
• Describe the cardiac configurations of the commoner cardiac conditions and their radiographic appearances
• Assess the CXR for pulmonary plethora and oligaemia, aortic position and situs

John Partridge
on behalf of Health Education England

Graduating from UCH London in 1969, he became interested in congenital and adult cardiac disease during a SHO post at Killingbeck Hospital in Leeds. After training in radiology in Leeds he spent a year as Fellow to Dr Peter Brandt in Auckland, New Zealand in 1973. He returned to Killingbeck Hospital as Consultant, where he did original work in cardiac situs, was an early user of echocardiography, and was an active catheteriser in children and adults, including coronary angioplasty. There was original work with contrast media and with digital cardiac imaging. He started a Club for cardiac radiologists, which is now the British Society for Cardiac Imaging, and edited the cardiac volume of ’A Textbook of Radiological Diagnosis’ (formerly ’British Authors’).

John emigrated to Australia in 1983, to the Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane, holding several positions including an associate professorship in the University of Queensland. Early experience in cardiac MRI, nuclear medicine and CT was added to continuing skills from Killingbeck.

In 1993 he returned to the UK to head the Imaging Department at Harefield Hospital, which at the time treated all ages, and was the most active cardiac transplantation unit in Europe. Here he remained an active investigator, and included interventional therapy in congenital heart disease. One of the first ECG gated multislice CT machines was acquired and coronary and congenital cases were studied. He contributed to Grainger and Allison.

When paediatrics left Harefield a few years later, active intervention declined and he became more of an educator, particularly in the field of radiation protection in cardiac investigations.

John retired from full time NHS work in 2006 and re-emigrated to Australia, where he continues to contribute to medical education and is a part-time Specialist at the Canberra Hospital.
