Professional profile

Since my appointment as Consultant Radiologist to the then St Helier Hospital in 1981, I have served on several committees and have co-founded 2 public appeals that resulted in the start up of one of the earliest CT scanner services in the South East, closely followed by the installation of a state of the art MR scanner. I have served as Secretary to the Magnetic Resonance Radiologists Associations (UK) and organised several UK based and one International conference. I have briefly served as MR special interest group lead to the Royal College of Radiologists and to the Radiology Committee of British Standards. Over the years I have authored and presented papers to learned societies at national and international levels and cooperated with my Orthopaedic Surgical colleagues in several research projects.

I specialise in all MSK radiology diagnostic and interventional procedures and have a particular interest in sports medicine. To date I have undertaken several hundred musculoskeletal diagnostic and interventional procedures including MR arthrography, CT scans for prosthetic complications, MR and CT based geometrical assessment of joints, and ultrasound guided joint and soft tissue therapeutic injections including ultrasound guided PRP injections for soft tissue injuries.

For several years during my Consultant tenure I was also an Honorary Senior Lecturer at St George's Hospital Medical School and Radiology Lead to Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust.
