Miranda has been a consultant for more than 20 years, having trained in NZ before coming to the UK. The majority of her working life has been based in West London working as a general radiologist with subspecialty interests.
For this course she wants each of you to feel comfortable reviewing colorectal MRI cases, and in particular to have an understanding of rectal cancer MRI staging such that each of you can understand the nuts and bolts of a sub-specialist radiologist’s report, sufficient to be able to review such a case with clinical colleagues as needed e.g. in the absence of the reporter. With luck, a few may be suitably excited by this challenging corner of radiology to use this as a springboard to seek more extensive training, but also to understand the role of MRI in problem solving those occasional colorectal conundrums.
Miranda spends much of her spare time in a 10-pole allotment, which her family have much difficulty removing her from at the weekends.
