4.  Imaging in sport and exercise medicine: “a sports physician's outlook and needs” 
The British Journal of Radiology  2012;85(1016):1198-1200.
Sport and exercise medicine (SEM) is an exciting new medical specialty that thrives on interdisciplinary practice. The SEM physician will usually be found managing a wider, multidisciplinary team of specialists, orchestrating their various inputs to ensure that the most effective management plan is delivered to the patient. One key member of this team is the radiologist, with whom the SEM physician usually has a very close working relationship. Areas of SEM practice that commonly involve significant input from radiologists include the use of appropriate imaging to confirm an accurate diagnosis and to inform management planning (such as decisions on return to play in the elite athlete), various screening and pre-participation assessments and also technical assistance with certain procedures. This article discusses the relationship between the SEM physician and the radiologist across each of these areas, illustrating the important contribution made by imaging services to the specialty of SEM.

7.  Molecular biology: the key to personalised treatment in radiation oncology? 
The British Journal of Radiology  2010;83(993):723-728.
We know considerably more about what makes cells and tissues resistant or sensitive to radiation than we did 20 years ago. Novel techniques in molecular biology have made a major contribution to our understanding at the level of signalling pathways. Before the “New Biology” era, radioresponsiveness was defined in terms of physiological parameters designated as the five Rs. These are: repair, repopulation, reassortment, reoxygenation and radiosensitivity. Of these, only the role of hypoxia proved to be a robust predictive and prognostic marker, but radiotherapy regimens were nonetheless modified in terms of dose per fraction, fraction size and overall time, in ways that persist in clinical practice today. The first molecular techniques were applied to radiobiology about two decades ago and soon revealed the existence of genes/proteins that respond to and influence the cellular outcome of irradiation. The subsequent development of screening techniques using microarray technology has since revealed that a very large number of genes fall into this category. We can now obtain an adequately robust molecular signature, predicting for a radioresponsive phenotype using gene expression and proteomic approaches. In parallel with these developments, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) can now detect specific biological molecules such as haemoglobin and glucose, so revealing a 3D map of tumour blood flow and metabolism. The key to personalised radiotherapy will be to extend this capability to the proteins of the molecular signature that determine radiosensitivity.
