Professor Gould is a consultant clinical interventional radiologist with broad teaching and research experience in radiology.
Prof Gould studied at the University of Liverpool, graduating in medicine in 1972; he then completed his Membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 1975, becoming a fellow of the college in 2002.
In 2002 Professor Gould formed ‘CraIVE’, a group that aims to bring virtual environments into use in the training of interventional radiology procedures. Funded by the Department of Health and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to help develop virtual reality image guidance simulations for interventional radiology, the group’s long-term aim is to create simulators that can help people to learn hard to acquire interventional radiology skills.
Professor Gould is chair of the European Simulation Task Force (of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Society of Europe) and was once an National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) senior investigator and is currently an SRG lead in radiology for the Cheshire and Merseyside CLRN. He has published over 200 papers and been invited to speak at lectures across the globe. He was awarded a gold medal by the British Society of Interventional Radiologists in 2011.
