She built the department there and became lead of the Aberdeen Biomedical Imaging Centre, eventually moving to the Chair of Radiology in Cambridge in 2011.</p> </div> </div> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-6"> <p>Having initially been appointed as an NHS consultant to set up and run the breast screening programme in the North-East of Scotland, she became fascinated with the challenges of research in this area. Professor Gilbert's clinical work and research has focused on imaging techniques relating to oncology, in particular, breast cancer. She is interested in multimodal functional imaging with MRI and PET of the tumour environment, using breast cancer as a model and correlating this with the tumour genetic profile. She undertakes research in stratified breast screening using tomosynthesis, whole breast ultrasound, and contrast-enhanced mammography and MRI. She maintains a strong interest in musculoskeletal imaging and has been developing MR biomarkers for osteoarthritis. Having undertaken large trials evaluating CAD in mammography, she is now working on developing and evaluating artificial intelligence in radiology.</p> </div> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-6"> <div> <i class="circle"> <div class="aspectratio-box"> <img src="/themes/myesr/images/aspectratio-holder-square.gif" style="width: 100%;min-height: 0px;"> </div> <article class="media media-medium-image view-mode-image-circle"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2020-11/F.J.Gilbert.png?itok=V1uyTxDL 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2020-11/F.J.Gilbert.png?itok=V1uyTxDL 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2020-11/F.J.Gilbert.png?itok=V1uyTxDL 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_1300x1300/public/2020-11/F.J.Gilbert.png?itok=V1uyTxDL 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_650x650/public/2020-11/F.J.Gilbert.png?itok=MUFFZlqG 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/png"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/max_650x650/public/2020-11/F.J.Gilbert.png?itok=MUFFZlqG 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/png"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/2020-11/F.J.Gilbert.png" alt="F.J.

Early on, he recognised the potential of image-guided treatments and developed a special interventional section within the AMC’s department of radiology. Throughout his career, he has developed many new techniques and devices. He is notably the co-inventor of subintimal angioplasty, the hydrolyser thrombectomy catheter, the optease caval filter and the Reekross catheter. He was one of the first physicians to pioneer extreme crural revascularisations.</p> <p>Next to his research in the field of uterine fibroid embolisation and vascular interventions, he has focused on treatment of diabetic foot disease for the past fifteen years and, more recently, perfusion imaging.</p> <p>Professor Reekers has always spoken out for evidence-based medicine and is a famous critic of using new interventional technologies without proper clinical evidence. He is straightforward and outspoken about the influence of the pharmacological industry on organising so-called ‘evidence’. He is convinced that evidence-based science is the only way to survive as a small specialty.</p> <p>During his 36 years at the AMC, he trained many young interventional radiologists, wrote various books and book chapters, and published more than 250 peer-reviewed papers about interventional radiology.</p> <p>Next to his academic work, he has always been a strong advocate for image-guided treatment and has given more than 600 lectures all over the world. He is currently the editor-in-chief of CVIRendovascular and he has served as president of several national and international organisations, such as the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) and the interventional radiology division of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). Professor Reekers is an honorary member of many international organisations, and has given the SIR Dotter lecture, the CIRSE Gruentzig lecture, the BSIR Wattie Fletcher lecture and the DRG Röntgen lecture. He initiated the European Curriculum for Interventional Radiology and the European Board of Interventional Radiology (EBIR) examination, which is now the standard for the field.</p> </div> </div> <i class="banner-image"> <picture> <!--[if IE 9]><video style="display: none;"><![endif]--> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_min_width_1200px/public/2016-10/6.jpg?h=4be2dc77&amp;itok=oQQQEoaY 1x" media="all and (min-width: 1200px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=_3VuiqEf 1x" media="all and (max-width: 1199px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_1199px/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=_3VuiqEf 1x" media="all and (min-width: 992px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=rrfBQch_ 1x" media="all and (max-width: 991px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_991px/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=rrfBQch_ 1x" media="all and (min-width: 768px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <source srcset="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=wIaBmKBH 1x" media="all and (max-width: 767px)" type="image/jpeg"/> <!--[if IE 9]></video><![endif]--> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/header_sm_max_width_767px/public/2016-10/6.jpg?itok=wIaBmKBH" alt="ESR" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </picture> </i> Wed, 19 Aug 2020 13:05:11 +0000 myESR 3272 at https://www.myesr.org Valentin Sinitsyn, Moscow, Russia https://www.myesr.org/article/1928 <span property="schema:name">Valentin Sinitsyn, Moscow, Russia</span> <span rel="schema:author"><span title="View user profile." href="/user/1" lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">myESR</span> </span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2018-11-21T09:36:47+00:00">Wed, 11/21/2018 - 10:36</span> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-12"> <p><em>In recognition of his outstanding work in cardiac imaging and the advancement of radiology in Russia and Europe, <strong>Professor Valentin Sinitsyn</strong> from Moscow, Russia, will be awarded the <strong>ESR Gold Medal</strong> at ECR 2019.</em></p> </div> </div> <div class="row p-relative"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-6"> <p>Professor Valentin Sinitsyn is chair of radiology and head of the Radiology Department at the medical faculty of Moscow Lomonosov State University, Moscow.<br /> Born in 1961 in Elizovo, Russia, he graduated from Sechenov Medical University in Moscow in 1984.
