Craig is a HCPC Registered Clinical Scientist and Chartered Scientist, working as a Principal Physicist, RPA and MPE, specialising in radiation protection and X-ray imaging systems. He is also a Corporate Member of the Institute of Physics & Engineering in Medicine. Routine duties include providing radiation safety advice and testing x-ray machines to ensure radiation dose and image quality is acceptable. Recent research interests have focussed around patient dose and image quality optimisation leading to optimised radiation dose settings for chest radiography across the Trust. One recent change in practice, as a direct result of Craig’s research, has potentially resulted in improved care for 1000s of patients per year. Other interests include optimising dose on the Trust’s CT scanners, radiotherapy imaging machines and breast screening mammography machines.
