Dr Umar Sadat received the Hunterian medal at the 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting of the Vascular Society of Great Britain and Ireland.
Hunterian Professor Dr Umar Sadat delivered the official 2019 Hunterian lecture on ‘Morphological, biomechanical and functional assessment of atherosclerosis with magnetic resonance imaging” on 29th November 2019 in Manchester. Vice-president of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Professor Cliff Shearman awarded the Hunterian medal to Professor Sadat in a special ceremony.
The ceremony was attended by members of the council of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vascular Society of Great Britain and Ireland, eminent scientists and vascular surgeons.
Dr Sadat has been awarded Hunterian Professorship for his long standing contributions to developing special techniques using MRI scan that can identify atherosclerotic plaque in great detail and can help risk stratify patient cohorts and guide treatment with known and novel anti-atherosclerotic therapies.
His award is rather unique in the long history of awards of Hunterian Professorships spanning over 200 years since 1810, as his research elegantly brings together diverse fields of cardiovascular medicine, MR physics, radiology and vascular surgery to developing this technique.
