Areas of interest 

Main areas of interest are gynaecological radiology. I am involved in the gynaecology oncology MDT. Second main interest is in gastrointestinal imaging.  

I do a wide range of imaging in association with this including pelvic, abdominal, testicular and transvaginal ultrasound. CT of the head, chest, abdominal and pelvis. MRI including gynaecology, prostate, rectal, fistula, enteroclysis, adrenal and hepatobiliary imaging. Practical procedures including biopsies (solid organ, lung, omentum and breast), drainages, barium work, and hysterosalpingograms. 


I enjoy teaching and have been heavily involved in teaching professions allied to medicine, medical students, non-radiology junior and consultant doctors and radiology registrars.
