Dr Thomas Booth Awarded Neuroradiologist of the Year
Dr Thomas Booth has received the Neuroradiologist of the Year Award at the 2023 Radiology Awards.
Thomas is a Consultant Diagnostic & Interventional Neuroradiologist at King's College Hospital, and a Reader in Neuroimaging for the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences, King’s College London.
He is the Chief Investigator on 5 UK multicentre and 4 NIHR portfolio-adopted prospective studies: more than 20,000 patients across the UK have been recruited to these studies. His largest study relates to abnormality detection in brain MRI scans using AI.
Thomas works collaboratively across the School and the Hospital and credits this award to their hard work and dedication.
"I am thrilled to be a recipient of this award which represents a broad team behind the successes. At the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences at King's College London, the team are my research group who work incredibly hard to achieve pioneering results - all propped up by considerable input from my fellow academics as well as supportive administrators at King's College London and King's College Hospital.
In the Department of Neuroradiology at King's College Hospital, the team consists of my neuroradiology consultant colleagues who have nurtured and tutored me over the years and continue to do so, the nurses and neuroradiographers who are committed to patient care, and the administrative team who are essential in helping the service to flourish,” he says.
Congratulations to Dr Booth and his team on this wonderful award! His dedication to advancing healthcare research and developing standards of best practice has made a massive contribution to our School's mission to engineer better health and improve patient outcomes.Professor Sebastien Ourselin FReng FMedSci, Head of the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences
The Radiology Awards 2023 offer an opportunity for organisations and professionals working within Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Radiology to be recognized for their contributions to patient outcomes.
“Dr Booth has been recognised for his contribution to outstanding neurovascular & neuro-oncology clinical outcomes through safe interventional neruoradiology practice (largest increase in thrombectomies in UK from 20 per annum to 200 per annum in 2 years) & implementing new technologies in the NHS. In addition, thanks to Dr Booth’s leadership, there is now an established NHS/international policy on how to follow up brain cancer with imaging, how advanced magnetic resonance imaging can help patients during brain cancer follow up and what to do with abnormalities discovered by chance on images or genome.
Dr Booth's multi-disciplinary research brings us a step closer to automated NHS brain MRI readers which will provide potential for patients to benefit globally," says Lizzy Gatenby, Head of Partnerships, Radiology Awards.
