UKACR Annual General Meeting & Conference 2006 (in collaboration with The Netherlands Cancer Registry)
“The role of cancer registries in surveillance and cancer care”
18-20 October 2006, Amsterdam, Holland

About the conference

The United Kingdom Association of Cancer Registries meets annually to discuss developments in cancer registration, the role of registry information in cancer control and relevant research.

The event was held at the RAI Exhibition and Congress Centre, which consists of 11 exhibition halls with a total covered exhibition area of some 87,000 sq.m. In addition the facility has 22 conference rooms, seven restaurants and an underground car park for over 3,000 cars.

In addition to our sponsorship of the conference and our free prize draw for the delegates, AES Medical exhibited the PathoSys® cancer reporting and information management system. The excellently run conference provided AES Medical the chance to demonstrate the unique advantages available to cancer registries when receiving data from pathology laboratories that have PathoSys® installed:

  • Structured data export, which removes the requirement for manual interpretation of pathology reports or inaccurate text analysis technology.
  • All data fields that make up the Royal College of Pathologists datasets can be selected by the user and then exported in a format and order specified by the user.
  • Potentially costly interfacing to the laboratory system, which often delivers limited data in differing formats, is no longer required.
  • As PathoSys® is laboratory system independent regular exports in a single format defined by the cancer registry can be sent from multiple laboratories with differing laboratory systems.
  • Upgrading and replacing the laboratory system will not interrupt the regular flow of data to the cancer registry.

AES Medical has regularly exhibited at the UKACR annual conference since 2001 and is proud to be able to support this event. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the organisers and speakers for a very interesting and superbly organised conference.
