Personal profile

My research in a nutshell

Professor Michelle Williams's British Heart Foundation funded research centres around multi-modality imaging of the heart, lungs and blood vessels. She uses state-of-the-art machine learning techniques to discover new information in medical imaging.

Her research involves computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of various cardiovascular diseases, and in particular coronary artery disease. 

She is a member of the steering committee of the SCOT-HEART and SCOT-HEART2 trials, which investigate the use of computed tomography coronary angiography to identify coronary artery disease.


Professor Michelle Williams is Professor of Cardiovascular Imaging and Consultant Radiologist at the University of Edinburgh and NHS Lothian. She is Associate Director of the British Heart Foundation Data Science Centre.

Her research centres around multi-modality non-invasive imaging of the heart and blood vessels, using advanced imaging and machine learning techniques. She holds a British Heart Foundation funded Intermeditate Clinical Research Fellowship.

She is president of British Society of Cardiovascular Imaging, member of the Board of Directors of the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography and member of the executive committee of the European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology.
