Charles has been a consultant Neuroradiologist in Sheffield since 1995. He trained in Neuroradiology in Sheffield and Manchester. He was awarded the Nycomed and Kodak scholarships which allowed him to gain experience at the Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm.
His clinical interest is in adult diagnostic Neuroradiology, particularly Neuro-oncology and the behaviour of low grade gliomas and imaging in dementia. He is interested in MRI in brain tumours and the use of advanced techniques to measure volume and blood flow changes in tumours over time. This can help the surgeon to choose the best time to operate. He is also closely involved with the use of functional MRI to look at the relationship of functionally important parts of the brain to these tumours. This is very important when surgery is being planned for these patients. Some of the software that Charles uses in these areas of advanced image analysis have been generously funded by Neurocare.
Charles is a well renowned lecturer and teacher of Neuroradiology. He is the organizer of the Sheffield Fundamentals of Neuroradiology Course. This is now in its 20th year. He is regularly invited to lecture locally, nationally and internationally and is one of the regular faculty members on the Erasmus MRI Course and the European Course in Neuroradiology. He has also been closely involved in the development of the examination for the European Diploma in Neuroradiology. Charles was recently awarded an Honorary Membership of the Polish Medical Society of Radiology for his work as lecturer and teacher of Neuroradiology across Europe and especially in Poland where he regularly gives lectures.
Outside of work, he enjoys playing the piano, water-colour painting, exploring many aspects of his Polish heritage and renovating an eighteenth century farmhouse in Derbyshire.
