Dr Bull has 15 years of radiology experience at consultant level and 11 years of experience in cardiac CT and cardiac MRI scanning. He is Level 3 accredited in cardiac CT by SCCT and BSCI.

Russell is currently involved in the development of cardiac MRI ‘cardiac DOT’software in conjunction with Siemens Healthcare. This allows cardiac MRI patients to be scanned more efficiently and reproducibly.
