Biography

Gary Cook trained in radiology and nuclear medicine in London, completing his MD in Quantitative 18F-fluoride PET in Metabolic Bone Diseases at King’s College London. He was appointed to the Chair of Clinical PET Imaging in the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences Cancer Imaging Department and KCL and Guy’s & St Thomas PET Centre and as an honorary consultant physician at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in 2011.

Research interests include evaluation of novel SPECT and PET tracers in oncology, multiparametric, multimodality imaging biomarker development and measurement of tumour heterogeneity, multimodality imaging of skeletal metastases and development of oncologic hybrid imaging, including PET/MRI. He is joint clinical lead for the clinical PET service and module lead and examiner for the KCL Nuclear Medicine MSc.
