Open to PhD supervision enquiries?
I am a Neuroradiologist, which means I am involved with medical imaging of primarily the brain & spine. My work is both clinical - in the NHS - as well as research & educationally based - at the University of Edinburgh.
My main research interest is in how imaging can be applied to the investigation of stroke, small vessel disease & the ageing process. I also teach about imaging, mainly via online learning degree programmes - at the Edinburgh Imaging Academy.
Clinical diagnosis of TIA or minor stroke and prognosis in patients with neurological symptoms:
Effect of IV alteplase on the ischemic brain lesion at 24-48 hours after ischemic stroke
Blood pressure variability and leukoaraiosis in acute ischemic stroke
Arterial Obstruction on Computed Tomographic or Magnetic Resonance Angiography and Response to Intravenous Thrombolytics in Ischemic Stroke
Switching patients with acromegaly from octreotide to pasireotide improves biochemical control
