Paediatric Haem-Oncology is an important sub-speciality where Radiology plays a pivotal role in diagnosis, staging, management planning and follow up. Fast-paced research activities and wide-ranging pathologies make it a challenge for a Paediatric Radiologist to keep abreast of the advances in this field. This interest group intends to bring together radiologists with an interest in Paediatric Haem-Oncology to share and disseminate their knowledge, views and experience.
The Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG), which is the national association of healthcare professionals involved in the treatment and care of children and younger teenagers with cancer has also undergone significant change in recent years. Its relationship and interaction with the radiologists have also been affected by these changes. This Paediatric Radiology interest group in the BSPR can play a pivotal role in representing the views of the association to the CCLG, especially in key areas like radiological investigation and follow up protocols in various cancers. Membership of CCLG, for which there is an annual fee, is open to all members of BSPR with an active interest in Paediatric Haem-Oncology.
