Professor of Radiology – University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine.
Honorary Consultant Radiologist – Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge. University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Specialty: Breast and Oncology Imaging and Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Email: F J Gilbert Tel.: + 44 (0)1223 46438
Professor Gilbert was appointed to the Chair of Radiology, head of department in Cambridge in 2011 having previously been the chair of the Aberdeen Biomedical Imaging Centre at the University of Aberdeen.
She has held various positions – Chair of the Academic committee of the Royal College of Radiologists, Chair of the NCRI Imaging Advisory group, Chair of the Royal College of Radiologists Breast Group, and co-chair of the NCRI PET Research Development group. She is past President of the European Society of Breast Imaging and past chair of the breast subcommittee of Radiological Society of North America. She now sits on the Research & development committee of RSNA.
She was an NIHR Senior Investigator and was awarded honorary fellowships of Radiological Society of North America, the American College of Radiology, the Gold medal from European Society of Radiology and a fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and the Academy of Medical Sciences.
Her research interests are in imaging technology evaluation – covering early cancer detection, diagnostic accuracy in CT and MRI, and newer breast imaging techniques such as breast Tomosynthesis, Contrast mammography, abbreviated MRI, whole breast ultrasound and non FDG radiotracers in cancer. She uses imaging to gain a better understanding of disease physiology and the tumour microenvironment. She advocates risk adapted breast screening for women and is currently testing risk stratified approaches through the MyPEBS trial and leading the BRAID trial of supplemental imaging. She is using Artificial intelligence to improve early cancer detection with different imaging modalities.
