Martine Rémy-Jardin was born in 1956 in Meknès, Morocco. She received her M.D. in 1981 from the Montpellier School of Medicine. From 1981 to 1986 she completed her residency in radiology and pneumology at the University Centers of Toulouse and Lille before she obtained her Specialty Board Certification in Radiology in 1986. In the same year Dr. Rémy-Jardin moved on to the Hôpital Calmette of the University Center of Lille as a fellow in radiology. She became associate professor of radiology in 1989, professor of radiology in 1991, 1998 she was promoted to head of the Department of Radiology and Chairman of the Department of Thoracic Imaging in 1998, and to her current position as Head of the Department of Cardio-Thoracic Imaging, University Centre of Lille in 2010.

Dr. Rémy-Jardin names her main fields of interest as HRCT of diffuse infiltrative lung diseases, pulmonary vascular diseases, cardiac and pulmonary functional imaging, and reduction in radiation dose. However, the major focus of her research lies in spiral CT imaging, where she covers technical developments, post-processing techniques, and CT angiography, as well as multi-detector CT. Those special areas of interest make up the core of her published works, which comprise 220 peer-reviewed publications, 75 postgraduate publications, 377 scientific papers, and 39 books and chapters, of which ‘CT Angiography of the Chest’ is most likely the best-known.
