Dr Donald McRobbie

I am a UK and Australasian registered diagnostic imaging medical physicist, MRI physicist and MR safety expert offering educational and professional consultancy in the medical imaging industry.

Additionally I hold the titles of Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Adelaide, formerly honorary Senior Lecturer, Department of Surgery, Imperial College London.

Prior to moving to Australia in 2013 I was the Director of the Radiological Sciences Unit, Imperial College Healthcare in London. I was a scientific and radiation safety advisor to the London 2012 Olympics. I was awarded a Distinguished Talent Visa by the Australian Department Immigration and Border Protection in May 2014 for professional and research contributions to medical physics and MRI. Until October 2017 I was the Head of Medical Physics for SA Medical Imaging, with a key role in the commissioning of the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.

MRI-p2p-3ed-cover-newMy research interests lie mainly in the area of advanced neurological MRI applications, quantitative MRI, the biological effects of magnetic fields, MRI safety and radiation dosimetry in diagnostic radiology.

I am a co-author of the popular MR physics textbook MRI from Picture to Proton. Currently I regularly provide MR education and training in the UK (with Eden Learning),  Australia and New Zealand.
