Senior MRI Radiographer
1st Floor Chapel Allerton Hospital
I qualified as a diagnostic radiographer in 1989 and specialised in Magnetic Resonance Imaging. After a varied career based in London, which had limited opportunities to further my clinical academic career as a radiographer, I moved to Yorkshire and the LMBRU in 2009. The support from the LMBRU allowed me to apply and succeed in obtaining a personal fellowship from the NIHR to study for a PhD. The title of my thesis is ‘Magnetic Resonance Imaging of synovitis without the use of intravenous gadolinium’. After completing my PhD in 2015 I am preparing an application for the NIHR Clinical lectureship scheme. The preparation includes promoting non-medic research within the Trust and nationally, as well as formulating a research question to continue the work commenced in my PhD.
