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 when he was awarded a Clinical Lecturer post there. 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.
Jonathan’s interests lie in cardiothoracic imaging, particularly in the use of CT and MRI for examining the interactions between arterial disease and cardiac function both within the systemic and the pulmonary circulation. He is currently a research fellow taking part in the SPUtNIk trial comparing dynamic contrast enhanced CT and positron emission tomography in the assessment of pulmonary nodules.
