The London-based radiologist Dr. Simon Rees was a remarkable man. In addition to writing well-regarded textbooks, he helped out at Buckingham Palace, played a key role in treating the injured passengers from an air disaster, and adored the sporting life. Late in his career, he also taught himself about cardiac MRI.

Another U.K. radiologist, Prof. Fiona Gilbert, has vast experience in breast and oncology imaging, and she specializes in MRI. Along with Dr. Erika Denton and Prof. Amaka Offiah, PhD, she's given some practical research tips in a new free podcast.
