Louise Burton

Senior Lecturer in Diagnostic Radiography Department of Allied Health Professions


Summary

#hellomynameis Louise.   I am an HCPC registered diagnostic radiographer with over twenty years’ experience, who is passionate about general radiography being a ‘forgotten specialty’, advanced practice and interprofessional working, amongst others. The center of my work has always been the patient and encouraging students of all disciplines to be the best that they can.   I have been honoured to be able to present and teach at national and international conferences, departmental meetings, Universities and in house during my time at the NHS.  I am in the final year of my PhD looking into the education and knowledge of non-medical professionals regarding radiation risk with an aim to improve referrals, which in turn will reduce the chance of stochastic side effects, which include cancer.   I am also a trained forensic radiographer with particular interest in non-accidental injury, mass fatality imaging and disaster victim identification (DVI).
