Dr Darren Boone MD MRCS FRCR

Consultant gastrointestinal and oncological radiologist


My clinical services as a diagnostic radiologist include a wide range of imaging examinations including  X-Ray (plain radiography ) CT (computed tomography), MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), USS (Ultrasound) and flouroscopy studies. My aim is to use state-of-the-art technology to help other doctors make a diagnosis or, when there is cancer, to stage the disease and help guide treatment


I provide expert witness negligence (breach and causation) assessments for The Court. I currently provide medicolegal reports for both the Defendant and Claimant in equal measure. I turn around, on average, 20 cases per year


I provide Research Consultancy involving a wide range of projects that require imaging expertise. Through my work with GB Diagnostic Ltd we provide a comprehensive service including protocol design, testing and report compilation


I am a Consultant Gastrointestinal and Oncological Radiologist at University College Hospital, London and Honorary Research Associate at University College London

Having graduated in medicine from St George’s Hospital Medical School, London in 2001, I completed basic surgical training and was awarded Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2005.

Subsequently, I underwent radiology speciality training at University College Hospital, London and was awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists in 2009. I then studied for a higher degree by thesis (MD Research) involving a 2.5-year radiology fellowship at the Centre for Medical Imaging, University College London. I have worked as a consultant radiologist in both district general and subspecialist tertiary teaching hospital settings.

I have lead colorectal, upper GI, hepatobiliary, gynaecology, endometriosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and gastroenterology multidisciplinary meetings (MDTs).




On a daily basis, I use state of the art imaging technology to diagnose cancer and benign disease. 

I have authored a postdoctoral thesis, three book chapters and numerous peer-reviewed journal articles on the subject of abdominopelvic radiology. My current research interest is in evidence-based-medicine, with an emphasis on systematic review of diagnostic and prognostic tests. 

Private and NHS Practice

My daily NHS practice is based in the world-leading University College London Hospitals where I have a challenging yet exciting role involving CT, MRI, ultrasound and flouroscopic imaging across a broad range of benign and malignant conditions including gastrointestinal cancers, inflammatory bowel disease, pelvic floor disorders. In addition, I provide private imaging services at the following sites (map):
