Rowland Illing is a Consultant Interventional Radiologist and Director of the Interventional Oncology Service at University College Hospital (UCH), London. He is also an Honorary Lecturer in the Division of Surgery and Interventional Science.
He graduated from Cambridge University and studied postgraduate medicine in Oxford before training in surgery at the Imperial College Hospitals and gaining membership of the Royal College of Surgeons. His higher research degree at Oxford University was in image-guided cancer therapy, using high-intensity focused ultrasound to destroy liver and kidney tumours. After a further year of research into image-guided prostate therapy he went on to formally train in imaging, becoming a fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists.
Rowland's passion for image-guided therapy for cancer led him to develop the Interventional Oncology Service at UCH where he treats a variety of solid tumour deposits using microwave, radiofrequency, laser and cryoablation.
He conducts research in the evaluation of new, minimally invasive technology and has established the Foundation for Interventional Oncology Research, part of UCH Charitable Trust.
