Urological radiology, Small bowel MRI and ultrasound, Pelvic floor and defaecating proctogram MRI, Gastrointestinal radiology, CT Scanning.
I am a Consultant Radiologist and provide a full range of bowel and pelvic floor imaging services. I am an expert in pelvic floor imaging and provide this service at an international level. Since commencing in post in Leicester, I have transformed the CT colon service, delivering a safer and more tolerable and patient friendly approach to bowel preparation. Using my training from London, I use novel MRI methods to assess the small bowel for signs of inflammation.
I specialise in bowel imaging and have expertise in the following areas: - CT colonography - MRI of the pelvic floor and defaecating proctography - Endoanal ultrasound - MRI and ultrasound of the small bowel - MRI and ultrasound of the liver - MRI and CT for colon and rectal cancer
To date, I have reported over 1000 CT colonogram studies, 1000 proctograms and 1000 small bowel MRI studies in my NHS and private practice.
Outside of my clinical practice, I am an educator. I have created and now succesfully run several international courses, have authored a textbook on radiology, and am the leading UK radiologist utilising social media and online learning in radiology.
