Dr Rosalind Mitchell-Hay

Position: Consultant Radiologist



Rosalind Mitchell-Hay is a Consultant Radiologist at NHS Grampian with an interest in gastrointestinal imaging. She is also an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at University of Aberdeen. Her research interests lie in utilising all of the information that is gathered from routinely acquired imaging and applying this to better facilitate personalised medicine within oncology.


She studied medicine at Guys’, Kings and St Thomas’ Medical School in London, during which time she also gained a BSc (Hons) in Clinical Healthcare, Ethics and Law. She started her specialist training in Radiology at Guys’ and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and completed this in the North of Scotland, where she was subsequently appointed as a Consultant.


Rosalind is currently undertaking a PhD which has the aim of developing an imaging biomarker in rectal cancer. Using radiomics, a new and developing field within radiology in which computer software extracts previously unseen digital imaging parameters, she aims to develop and test a predictive model to facilitate more precision medicine within rectal cancer.
