I graduated in Medicine from University College Dublin in 1991. I spent 5 years in Clinical Medicine and Oncology, completing my MRCP, during which time I developed a passion for Radiology, as I realised what an important path of the patient’s journey this specialty has become. I moved to the UK to study further at Kings College Hospital, gaining my FRCR in 2001.
I then travelled to Toronto to train further with a Body Imaging Fellowship, returning to the UK to take up a post as a Consultant Radiologist in 2002, in Kings College Hospital.
My main area of interest is the abdomen and pelvis, with a special interest in the gastrointestinal tract and pelvic imaging. I report 600 CTCs (CT colons) a year, 3000 CT scans a year, 600 ultrasounds a year, including transvaginal and dedicated bowel ultrasound, contrast ultrasound, and liver elastography. I report over 1000 MR examinations a year. As part of my interest in body radiology, I have also developed a pelvic floor imaging service, to include endo anal ultrasound, perineal ultrasound and MR and fluoroscopic defecating proctograms. As part of my interest in womens imaging, I perform Transvaginal ultrasound and Hysterosalpingograms. I report 3000 plain films a year. I am the lead of GI Radiology in Kings College Hospital.
I take the Colorectal cancer MDT weekly, Inflammatory bowel disease MDT weekly, Complex IBD MDT monthly, and Pelvic floor MDT monthly.
I have published on GI imaging and ultrasound contrast imaging. I have lectured at national and international level. I train junior colleagues and attend national and international meetings frequently to insure that I provide the most up to date and relevant service to my patients.
My aim is to provide an experienced opinion for my patients, using my many years of experience working in a busy teaching hospital.
