Raad H. Mohiaddin MD, PhD, FRCR, FRCP, FESC
Raad Mohiaddin is Professor of Cardiovascular Imaging at the National Heart and Lung Institute Imperial College London and Royal Brompton Hospital.
After graduating with a basic medical degree, Professor Mohiaddin began general training in cardiology. Then he decided to pursue an academic career and in 1985 he joined the magnetic resonance unit at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London UK. He has since been concerned with the development and applications of magnetic resonance imaging (CMR, MRI) techniques in cardiology.
His concern has been to make the best possible use of the functional and anatomical information provided by MRI in understanding cardiovascular diseases and to guide diagnosis and management of patients with these diseases.
Research interests include quantitative blood flow measurements and blood flow visualization, vascular and arterial wall imaging and the use of imaging for assessment of the biophysical properties of the vascular wall and development of imaging techniques to guide electrophysiological interventional procedures. Other interests include imaging in congenital heart disease, myocardial diseases and the correlation of imaging and genetics studies in patients with aortic aneurysms.
Professor Mohiaddin was twice awarded the William S. Moore award of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine in the years 1991 and 1993. This is the highest honor offered by this society to a medical investigator. He is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, the Royal College of Radiologists and the European Society of Cardiology. He has served on the Boards of Trustees and scientific program committees of numerous scientific and medical societies.
He is an assistant editor for the Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance and on the editorial board of many medical journals and a referee for several clinical and scientific journals. He has more than 300 publications including 140 peer-reviewed papers, three published books and has a long list of invited lectures nationally and internationally.
Professor Mohiaddin is PI on several grant applications and has supervised several successful PhD and MSc students. He has served as internal and external examiner for a number of universities.
Finally, Professor Mohiaddin established research collaborations bridging several clinical and basic science departments within Imperial College and the Royal Brompton Hospital.
Applications from students and fellows interested in research are always welcome.
