ANZ Branch Webinar : Medical Imaging – A Role In Brain Death AND Clinical Workup of the Organ Donor
June 28, 2023 @ 20:00 - 21:30 AESTFree – $10
Join the ANZ branch of the IAFR for their next webinar which combines two presentations, ‘Medical
Imaging: A role in brain death’ by Shannon Crick and ‘Clinical workup of the organ donor’ by Dr Rohit
Shannon Crick is the Deputy Director of Medical Imaging at Calvary Public Hospital in the ACT, and
modality lead for CT and XR. She has previously worked as the Clinical Educator at The Canberra
Hospital, where she collaborated with the ICU Critical Care team and the ACT Donate Life team to
provide education to staff around imaging for brain death and organ donation.
Dr Rohit D’Costa is an intensive care physician at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the State Medical
Director of DonateLife Victoria.
Brain death occurs when there is irreversible loss of all functions of the brain, including the
brainstem. Determination of whole brain death is required for the legal determination of death in
Australia and New Zealand. If brain death cannot be determined clinically, Medical Imaging plays a
vital role in demonstrating the absence of intracranial blood flow and facilitating conversations
around organ donation.
“Medical Imaging: A role in brain death” by Shannon Crick, outlines the physiology of brain death,
diagnosis and reviews the imaging recommendations of the Australia and New Zealand Intensive
Care Society on brain death. These guidelines provide a roadmap for any hospital imaging centre
willing to engage in the remarkable work of the organ donation teams across Australia.
“Clinical workup of the organ donor” by Dr Rohit D’Costa, will focus on the clinical management,
investigation and facilitation of the organ donation process with particular focus on the types of
radiological tests that may be requested and their rationale.
