Some of the most popular items on the ImPACT web site are the presentations on a range of subjects relating to CT scanning. Many of these are from our ImPACT course, but there are also talks given at conferences and meetings.

Have you attended an ImPACT presentation which is not currently available? We apologise for the delay in making our more recent presentations available. Due to the current resource limitations within the group, we are not able to prepare and upload our presentations as swiftly as we would like. Please make sure to check our coming soon listing.
