Consultant Radiologist receives travelling professorship
Tom Marshall, Consultant Radiologist, has been awarded the prestigious travelling professorship jointly by the Royal College of Radiologists and British Society of Skeletal Radiologists (BSSR) which will run over the next 12 months.
Tom, who will have worked as a consultant at our hospital for 25 years next year, will be travelling to different training departments and sharing his knowledge and experience with radiologists in training across the United Kingdom.
His aim will be to raise the profile of musculoskeletal (MSK) radiology by delivering a series of lectures and tutorials with the hope of inspiring the next generation of musculoskeletal radiologists.
Tom has been pivotal in creating a regional spinal intervention service with the spinal surgeons at our hospital using minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of painful osteoporotic and metastatic vertebral compression fractures and implementing an image guided radiofrequency ablation service for the treatment of benign and malignant bone tumours, which has benefited many patients in severe pain over the years.
He said: “It is an honour to have been awarded the professorship in recognition of the work I have done throughout my career as a consultant. Radiology has evolved dramatically over the last three decades with advances in both diagnostic and interventional techniques. We have worked hard to develop the interventional spinal service which has led to our hospital being recognised regionally and nationally for this work. I very much look forward to sharing my experiences with radiologists in training across the UK.”
