Consultant Radiologist receives travelling professorship

Trainee radiologists from across Great Britain are set to benefit from the expertise and guidance of a NNUH consultant who has been awarded a travelling professorship.

Consultant Radiologist Tom Marshall has received the prestigious accolade from the Royal College of Radiologists and British Society of Skeletal Radiologists (BSSR).

Professor Marshall, who has worked as a consultant at NNUH for almost 25 years, will share his knowledge and experience to raise the profile of musculoskeletal (MSK) imaging amongst trainees by delivering seminars and tutorials across Great Britain.

He will take up the role, which will run over the next 12 months, in addition to his current work at NNUH.

Professor Marshall has been pivotal in creating a regional spinal intervention service with the spinal surgeons at NNUH 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 benefitted 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 the NNUH being recognised regionally and nationally for this work.

I very much look forward to sharing my experiences with radiologists in training across the UK.”
