My post involves delivering high quality, busy PET-CT and clinical Nuclear Medicine services. My PET-CT experience includes applications in oncology, neurology, cardiology and infection/inflammation using a variety of tracers including 18F, 18 F FDG, 13N ammonia and 11C methionine. I have an interest in paediatric PET and am the author of UK guidelines on the use of PET-CT in children and co-author of European guidelines in the use of PET-CT for paediatric patients in oncology. My work with Prof O’Doherty and Dr Warbey also members of the Division resulted in a revision of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) Dosage Card with lower recommended minimum doses for children for FDG imaging. I am interested in radiation protection and my research on doses received by families and members of the public following radioiodine therapy for patients has guided UK practice and is cited in European guidance, IRMER 2000 and the UK medical and dental guidance notes. I enjoy teaching and the 2nd edition of my Atlas in Clinical PET is a well-used textbook and was awarded the First Prize for Radiology in the British Medical Book Competition 2006. I represent the RCP on the Joint Standing Committee and the Intercollegiate Standing Committees on Nuclear Medicine. I am a member of the NCRI lymphoma studies group.
