Brian Campbell is a senior Clinical Scientist at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust where his primary role is training and education in echocardiography.
He has a specialist interest in the diagnosing, assessment and surveillance of heart valve disease within physiologist-led valve clinics. He is also a postgraduate lecturer at Newcastle University where he lectures on valve disease and strain imaging.
He completed his PhD in Tissue Doppler Echocardiography in 2004 and is published in a number of papers, mainly in heart valve disease. He is on the programme committee and Council of the British Heart Valve Society and is a member of the British Society of Echocardiography.
He is a past President and Fellow of his professional body, the Society for Cardiological Science and Technology and was the first of his profession to achieve equivalence of the Higher Specialist Scientific Training through the Academy of Healthcare Science of which he is now a Fellow.
