Overview

Chris joined UEMS in August 2017. He is a qualified Diagnostic Radiographer and has developed a high profile career to encompass academic, clinical, and commercial settings. His primary research theme is decision making, particularly image interpretation, and is the creator of RadBench®

He qualified as a Diagnostic Radiographer (Bradford) in 1981 and began teaching at the North West Lancashire School of Radiography in 1986. In 1989 he joined Philips Medical Systems and had a pivotal role in the commercialization of short-bore MRI scanners. He moved to General Electric in 1995 and continued to develop his MRI expertise, particularly in the development of phased array spine coil technology (6 Sigma Black Belt); and led the public-private partnership (PPP) for the North Wales Cancer Treatment Centre. He diversified to service management in 2001 and developed the e-procurement platform with NHS PaSA. In 2003 became European Service Sales and Marketing Manager, and led the development of the European Call Centre in Budapest.

He returned to higher education in 2005 as head of the Carlisle Campus at the University of Cumbria and post graduate MRI lead and commence his PhD. In 2012 he joined Sheffield Hallam University, developing a platform to enable eAssessment of clinical practice in partnership with MyKnowledgeMap, and developed his interest in infra-red thermal imaging. In early 2016 he joined London South Bank University as Associate Professor and professional lead for Diagnostic Radiography and also post-registration lead for the Allied Health Professions.

Chris is a qualified microlight and has ratings for both flex-wing and fixed-wing aircraft.

Research

Research interests

Chris is primarily a quantitative researcher. His work is based around the ‘decision making’ theme which is in several strands:

  1. RadBench® forms the basis of the image interpretation research which has global coverage. 
  2. Item Response Theory
  3. Post Processing
    • Hierarchical Clustering-based Segmentation
    • Image fusion
  4. Thermal Imaging

He is an experienced dissertation supervisor.
