Jonathan Weir-McCall graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2002. He entered Radiology training in Guy’s and St. Thomas’ London before moving to the University of Dundee where he was awarded a Clinical Lecturer post. During his training in Dundee he was awarded a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Fellowship to undertake a PhD using cardiac MRI to examine the role of arterial stiffening in chronic obstructive pulmonary artery disease. After completing his training in Radiology Jonathan undertook a fellowship in Advanced Cardiac Imaging in St Paul’s Hospital under the auspices of Jonathon Leipsic. During this time he conducted research examining the benefits of cardiac CT in structural and coronary disease, and the potential for computational fluid dynamics to guide and improve the clinical care of coronary artery disease.
He is a University Associate Professor and Honorary Consultant in Cardiothoracic Imaging. His research interests lie in cardiothoracic imaging, particularly in the use of CT and MRI for understanding disease, guiding management and prognosis. This work focuses on the interactions between arterial disease and cardiac function both within the systemic and the pulmonary circulation.
He is a member of the Certification and Accreditation Committee of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging, and is an editorial board member for Radiology: Cardiothoracic Imaging and the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.
