Dr. Andrew Gogbashian MBBS MRCS FRCR, Consultant Radiologist
has developed a specialist interest in CT scanning museum pieces, antiques and artwork.
He qualified from Imperial College School of Medicine, London and undertook a year of research at The Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA – before completing his radiological training at Hammersmith Hospital, London and Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, Northwood.
In his medical radiology practise, he is a renowned specialist in CT and MRI multiparametric imaging and is the Lead Radiologist for CT scanning at PSSC, Mount Vernon Cancer Centre.
His interest in CT scanning antiques and artwork began, when he was approached by a well-known London museum to scan several rare archaeological artefacts to assist in their recent excavations.
The CT images produced were a great success and allowed the museum to assess in detail the size, lie, shape and suspected materials used within the artefacts, before excavation.
The beautifully reconstructed images allowed a safe ‘roadmap’ for the pain-staking excavations that happened after these scans.
Dr Gogbashian is a fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR), London and is a member of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the European Society of Radiology (ESR).
His services are called upon by museums in London with CT scans in increasing demand by antique dealers, auction houses and private collectors around the globe.
