The John Mallard Lecture is given annually at the UK Radiological and Radiation Oncology Congress to recognise the outstanding contribution and leadership of Professor John Mallard in the field of Medical Imaging.
John Mallard’s career spanned more than 40 years, during which advances in medical imaging facilitated huge improvements in the diagnosis and management of disease.
He pioneered many of the technologies which have become standard in health care throughout the world including Radionuclide Imaging, Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Positron Emission Tomography.
Having established his reputation at the Hammersmith Hospital and St Thomas’ Medical School in London, he took up the first Chair in Medical Physics at Aberdeen University.
His leadership of the Department of Medical Physics and Bioengineering in Aberdeen, combining an academic role in the University with a high class comprehensive service to the hospital, epitomizes the ethos of the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine which established this lecture in 2004 in his name.
The inaugural lecture was presented by Professor Peter F Sharp at UKRC in 2005.
