Professor Stephen KeevilProfessor Stephen Keevil is a Consultant Clinical Scientist at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and Professor of Medical Physics at King’s College London. He has a portfolio of responsibilities across clinical service support, research, teaching and health technology assessment. Professor Keevil has a long standing interest in both scientific and practical aspects of MR safety. In 2003 he became aware of an imminent EU Directive that would introduce extremely limiting mandatory EMF exposure limits for MRI workers. He was heavily involved in negotiations in the UK and the wider EU to mitigate this problem, resulting in repeal of the directive and adoption of a new one in which most of the MRI community’s concerns are addressed. He worked with the Health and Safety Executive as they planned to implement the Directive in UK law and is leading on the development of national guidance on the Regulations in the context of MRI.
