Dr Richard Hodgson - personal details
Richard studied physics before his PhD in MRI of Arthritis at Cambridge. He then studied medicine at Southampton after which he trained as a consultant musculoskeletal radiologist in Liverpool. Subsequently, during a Royal College of Radiologists Research Fellowship, he investigated the use of pharmacokinetic modelling of dynamic contrast enhanced MRI of rheumatoid arthritis in response to treatment. He worked as a Senior Lecturer in MRI at the University of Leeds and was Head of MRI at the NIHR Leeds Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit. During this time his research included ultrashort echo time imaging of tendons and whole body multiple joint imaging.
He moved to the University of Manchester Centre for Imaging Sciences in August 2013 and works closely with the Manchester Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit (BRU) and the Research in Osteoarthritis Manchester (ROAM) group studying bone marrow lesions in osteoarthritis.
