Dr John Troupis
Speciality: Reporting Radiologists
Associate Professor John Troupis has been interested in exploring the benefits of wide field of view CT, attracting the attention of several sub-specialist surgeons who have taken the opportunity to further investigate clinical conditions which have been traditionally poorly understood.
Prior to joining Imaging Associates, John was a consultant radiologist at Monash Health, and obtained his medical degree from the University of Melbourne in 1989. He subsequently completed his basic and advanced radiology training at Monash Medical Centre in 2000. John was instrumental in collaborating with the Cardiology Department at Monash to begin the cardiac CT service at Monash Health in 2008. The introduction of a new generation, wide field of view, CT unit with 320 detectors allowed him to further explore this relatively new concept in medical imaging.
As his investigation of the utility of wide field of view CT scanning evolved, John was instrumental in exploring 4 Dimensional CT scanning involving motion CT scan. This novel technique has been useful in exploring various poorly understood clinical conditions such as lung cancer tethering, shoulder instability, wrist instability and post hip joint replacement pain impingement.
John graduated with his Doctor of Medicine from Monash University in 2016 with his thesis titled “Wide field of view CT: Clinical Impact in Medical Imaging”, and currently has over sixty publications, and numerous international presentations.
John joins Imaging Associates with subspecialty interests in the fields of musculoskeletal and spinal imaging and intervention, cardiac CT, respiratory imaging, and 4D CT.
His numerous academic commitments include research and teaching with Monash University, Department of Radiation Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry & Nursing, representing the Royal Australian & NZ College of Radiologists (RANZCR) on the Australian & New Zealand CT Coronary Angiography credentialing committee, and is the co-lead examiner for the RANZCR musculoskeletal imaging Part 2 examinations.
John was previously the deputy chairman for the RANZCR International Medical Graduate Committee and also a member of the RANZCR research committee. He was previously an associate editor for the local radiology journal, The Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Oncology, and he has presented the novel use of 4D CT for instability and impingement disorders to both Manchester United and Barcelona FC Club doctors in February 2017.
