He has a proven track record in delivering innovative imaging techniques:

  • Established first UK site for functional MR Urography (fMRU), a specialised technique providing estimated renal function and anatomical imaging in a single scan, avoiding radiation exposure from traditional techniques.
  • Established fetal body MR & fetal CT services, subsequently joining with the KCL Perinatal imaging group.
  • Established 3D printing services for nephrourology and renal transplant teams.
  • Established US liver elastography service.
