Professor Ian Marshall
Emeritus Chair of Magnetic Resonance Physics
After graduating in physics from Oxford University, I joined Lothian Health Board as a Medical Physicist, working on Physiological Measurement and the development of instrumentation for research studies.
In 1992, I was awarded a PhD for work on non-invasive measurement of airways using an acoustic technique. Since 1991, I have specialised in Magnetic Resonance Imaging, being appointed to the University of Edinburgh in 1996. I was appointed Professor of Magnetic Resonance Physics in 2007 and was Head of Medical Physics & Medical Engineering 2008-2011.
I divide my time between the Brain Research Imaging Centre and the Medical School at Little France, leading a small group of physicists supporting the development of MRI for clinical and preclinical use.
I am Treasurer and Membership Secretary of the British Chapter of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) and served on the Annual Meeting Program Committee of ISMRM 2011-2013. I chair the Local Organising Committee for the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology conference to be held in Edinburgh 1-3 October 2015.
I am interested in all aspects of Magnetic Resonance, with particular emphasis on the development, application and evaluation of techniques for clinical and biomedical use. Specific interests are:
- quantitative blood flow and cardiac studies
- Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy for the non-invasive investigation of metabolism
- undersampling techniques for rapid imaging
- large-scale numerical simulations of MRI
