I trained at Manchester University gaining a BSc (Hons) 1987 in Immunology and Oncology and a MB ChB (Hons) in 1990. This stimulated an interest in academic medicine and research.
In 1991 I moved to Sheffield for a medical rotation and then trained in Radiology. My interest in academic medicine continued and in 1998 I joined the University of Sheffield as a part time lecturer and promoted to (part time) senior lecturer in 2003.
I have been instrumental in the development of research and clinical practise in the field of Magnetic Resonance (MR) Imaging of the fetus and neonate providing a top class local service and accepting referrals from all over the UK. I also support development in countries abroad by providing second opinions if required and welcome visitors to the unit.
I provide a clinical MR imaging service and I am actively involved in MDT meetings for both patients with fetal abnormalities or suspected placental invasion and Neonates. I also take part in the genetics/pathology fetal and neonatal MDT.
