BiographyStuart Taylor is Professor of Medical Imaging at University College London and an academic clinical radiologist with a particular interest in oncological and gastrointestinal imaging. His work focuses on how imaging tests used in the NHS can be used as markers of diseases processes. For example his work on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in Crohn’s disease has helped the technique to become established, replacing conventional imaging tests which use ionising radiation. Professor Taylor also has expertise in running multicentre trials investigating the impact of high technology imaging platforms such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on patient care in the NHS. Examples of his work include investigating whole body MRI techniques as a potential “one stop shop” for cancer staging, replacing the myriad of conventional scans currently used, and a comparison of MRI and ultrasound in the diagnosis and staging of Crohn’s disease. He works closely with health psychologists and health economists, and has an interest in researching patient experience and expectations of imaging tests used in the NHS
