Biography

Biography

Chair of Radiology

Qualifications

I am a general clinical Radiologist with special interest incardio-thoracic imaging and Head of the Peninsula Radiology Academy. Since 2010, I have had a five-session contract with the University of Plymouth as Chair of Radiology.

Teaching

Teaching

Teaching interests

I am involved in development of the undergraduate curriculum, particularly the utilisation of cross sectional imaging to deliver anatomy training.

I am head of the Radiology Academy; a postgraduate school on the Derriford site which delivers all aspect of training to post graduate doctors to become consultants. The purpose-built facility has a 140-seat lecture theatre, uses a number of novel teaching methods (including simulators) and was described by Marin Marshall (Deputy Chief Medical Officer) as a "shining light for all specialities" in his assessment in 2008.

Virtual Post-Mortem

An imaging alternative to invasive PM. Our work has shown it is a viable alternative to conventional post-mortem in selected conditions. Work published Lancet 2012.

Cardiac Computed Tomography

Have developed the technique from a research tool (2003) to an important clinical tool recommended by NICE. Largest clinical experience in UK. Developed all the training & accreditation tools for the UK. Advisor to NICE, Royal Colleges & DoH on subject. Over 50 publications of the subject.

Low dose CT

New techniques to provide CT at same x-ray doses as plain films.
