Hanna graduated from Stadia University for Applied Sciences with a Bachelor degree of Radiography and Radiation therapy in 2000. She has been working in public hospitals and private health centers in a field of radiography and she has been working in a radiation therapy field as well recently. Hanna has gained experience in working abroad, and she did jump in to the industry side of the field for a while, to be a product- and application specialist for digital x-ray and mammography systems. Even though Hanna has broad experience in various modalities in the field of radiography, mammography and screening are near to her heart.
Over the years Hanna has been active in the local and national boards of radiographer societies in Finland. She has been volunteer working for the Society of Radiographers in Finland as a student coordinator and International coordinator.
When not working, Hanna has an interest in music, she plays flute, and in literature and writing. Two sons do keep her busy and happy.

Pam Black is Radiology Services Manager at Wirral University Teaching Hospital, NHS Foundation Trust in the UK.
Pam is a radiographer whose career spans 39 years working mainly in and around Liverpool. She became a Radiology Manager in 2002 and worked in North Wales before moving closer to home to take up a post at Aintree University Hospital. In November 2014, she moved across the River Mersey to become Radiology Manager at Wirral University Teaching Hospital.
Pam was elected as Society of Radiographers UK Council Member for the North West of England in 2009. She was immensely proud to be elected President for 2013/14 during which time she was very involved with the concept and creation of a new national Clinical Imaging Board.
Pam is currently the Vice Chair of Radiology and Oncology Congress, represents the Society and College of Radiographers as the council member of the UK at the International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologists and is the Chair of the Election Committee for the European Federation of Radiography Societies.
