Philip Kilner is Consultant and Reader in Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) at Royal Brompton Hospital and the National Heart and Lung Institute.
Dr Kilner''s interests include the imaging and pathophysiology of congenital and valvular heart disease. Having studied sculpture as well as medicine, he has particular interest in the form of the healthy heart and its optimization for dynamic function.
Philip Kilner has chaired a group, commissioned by the European Society of Cardiology CMR and Grown-Up Congenital Heart disease Working Groups, which has prepared ''Recommendations for magnetic resonance in adults with congenital heart disease''. He led the EuroCMR Initiative Group on Flow Measurement, which has published the results of a multi-site study of potential errors in CMR flow measurement sequences.
Philip Kilner holds a British Heart Foundation Grant to collaborate with Professor Nic Smith in Oxford, Professor Peter Hunter in Auckland and Dr Michael Markl in Freiburg on ''Magnetic resonance based numerical modelling of whole heart structural and fluid dynamics''. The project aims to provide novel insights into the coordinated function of the healthy heart, and to contribute to the development of a ‘normal’ whole heart model as a basis for the future development of patient specific numerical models for the simulation of cardiovascular pathologies and interventions. With Michael Markl, he submitted the winning ‘Blood streams of the heart’ video to the 2010 British Heart Foundation ‘Reflections of Research’ competition.
BBC world service interview
Dr Stephen Webster interviews Philip about his work. One of Philip''s water sculptures is on display at Royal Brompton Hospital. Philip talks to Stephen about the combinations of artistic and medical imaging experience which help him interpret images of the heart.
