Susan Foster

Radiologist, Specialises in all areas of ultrasound including MSK and gynaecology

My name is Sue Foster, I trained and qualified as a radiographer in 1993 , then going on to undertake the PG Dip in medical ultrasound in 1996 . I specialise in all areas of ultrasound including MSK, gynaecology, general medical, head and neck and small parts. I am qualified in obstetrics but have not been active in this area for several years now.

I am employed in the private sector as opposed to the NHS where I trained and worked for 17 years. Working in the private sector means for the most part I am a single-handed sonographer making independent decisions and dealing with patients in a one on one situation. I produce all my own reports and second report for the team on more complex cases where required. I am a student mentor and assessor and I have held this role for many years.  I have recently been a part time lecturer practitioner at the University of Leeds and I still guest lecture on the modules as part of the PC cert / PG dip.
