Biography

Tom Bourne is adjunct professor at Imperial College London, consultant gynaecologist at Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital and a visiting professor at KU Leuven Belgium. He is an internationally renowned authority on the use of ultrasound in gynaecology and in the management of problems in early pregnancy.

Professor Bourne has edited six books, published over 300 papers and spoken at numerous international meetings. He is board member of the International Society for Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology and steers several international trials.

He sat on the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound panel developing guidelines for diagnosing miscarriage in the USA (2012), and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) guidelines panel for diagnosing ovarian cancer (2014). In 2014 he was awarded an honorary fellowship of the AIUM.

His expertise lies in using ultrasound to make a clear diagnosis, whilst being able to reassure people they have nothing seriously wrong if nothing is seen on a scan. If a problem is found he works closely with other specialist gynaecologists such as Christina Fotopoulou so that should surgery be required,  it is carried out by the appropriate sub-specialist and so ensure the best outcome.
