Dr Audrey Tucker

It is with great regret and sadness to note the passing of Dr Audrey Tucker on the 30 May. Audrey was a founding member of Symposium Mammographicum and was instrumental in forming a group of radiologists to host conferences on breast imaging in the late 1970s. Her work as a breast radiologist and vision made her major contributor to medicine in the UK. After her retirement, Audrey continued to support Symposium Mammographicum.

Society of Trainee Radiologists – Conference May 2019

Committee members and Trustees supported the SRT Cardiff which took place on the 16 and 17 May 2019 by holding Breast Biopsy Workshops. This is the second year Symposium Mammographicum has supported the SRT with regard to staging workshops, building on the results of this extra dimension to their conference last year.

This year proved just as successful, with positive feedback received.
