Dr Mark Little is a Senior Fellow in Interventional Radiology at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Lecturer in Anatomy and Embryology at Keble College, University of Oxford.
Following an undergraduate degree in physics, Mark initially trained in London as a medical physicist, specialising in MRI, nuclear medicine, and radiotherapy. He undertook research into functional MRI and novel MR sequences, establishing a body of work within the field of parallel imaging. With an ever-growing fascination for radiology, Mark decided to retrain as a medical doctor, qualifying with distinction from medical school, before completing junior doctor jobs in Cambridge, at which time his research was in interventional neuroradiology on stenting treatments for benign intracranial hypertension.
Mark then moved to Oxford after being awarded an NIHR funded Academic Clinical Fellowship (ACF) in Clinical Radiology. His current research interests are in the field of interventional radiology; investigating innovative MRI sequences to quantify perfusion following angioplasty, the role of percutaneous microwave ablation in the treatment of lung, liver and renal malignancies, and the utilisation of prostatic artery embolistaion in the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia. Mark has presented his work internationally and published in peer-reviewed journals.
All members of the University and NHS clinical staff are welcome.
