Dr Colin Deane
Honorary senior lecturer
Colin is currently a Consultant Clinical Scientist in the King’s Vascular Laboratory in the department of Medical Engineering and Physics. His teaching and research is founded on clinical work here where ultrasound techniques are used for non-invasive diagnostic ultrasound of the circulation.
Colin is currently President of the British Medical Ultrasound Society. This multi-disciplinary Society is committed to promoting the science of medical ultrasound and its safe and effective implementation. The increased availability of low-cost, highly capable ultrasound scanners offers opportunities and challenges to ensure that ultrasound is used competently in many healthcare settings.
King’s College ultrasound courses offer the opportunity for students to develop their knowledge and skills and to advance the science and good practice of medical ultrasound. A central part of this is to make the science of ultrasound understandable to those without a strong technical background by showing how the science affects image quality and diagnostic accuracy.
