I am firstly a diagnostic radiologist with wide experience in oncology using standard equipment (ultrasound, CT, MRI, including PET-CT scanning). I also have wide experience in interventional radiology with regards to oncology and can offer any procedure relevant to oncological practice.
My main interest is the diagnosis, staging and treatment of prostate and colorectal cancer. Prostate brachytherapy is now an established technique for treatment of localised prostate cancer and, in conjunction with oncology colleagues, I am able to offer this service locally.
