Former consultant radiologist Guy's Hospital, London (b Ystradgynlais, Wales, 1924; q Edinburgh 1947; TD, FRCP Ed, FRCR), d 5 December 2002.
Although he remained a general radiologist, he was ready to innovate in specialised areas. He promoted the double contrast barium enema, was a determined exponent of the small bowel enema or direct barium follow-through study, and became an expert in the radiology of the middle and inner ear. He also pioneered the use of mammography, persuading the breast unit of its value both as a part of clinical evaluation and as a screening procedure. For a time he was on the management committee of the Wine Society. He was also a territorial soldier. He leaves a wife, Phil, and three children. A memorial service will be held in the chapel of Guy's Hospital at 12 noon on 26 March.
