Dr John W Read MB BS (UNSW 80), FRANZCR (86), DDU (86) Dr John Read completed his post-graduate radiology training at Westmead Hospital in Sydney in 1985 and was Staff Specialist in the same department the following year. He entered private practice in 1987 at Darlinghurst X-ray, Sydney and St Vincent’s Private Hospital, Sydney where he developed a special interest in high resolution ultrasound. In 1993 Dr Read established a new subspecialty ultrasound practice at the North Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre, which soon merged with the pre-existing plain x-ray practice at that clinic to form ‘Sports Imaging’. Over the past 19 years he has been a leader in musculoskeletal ultrasound development and education within Australia and New Zealand. Dr Read has served as both Chairman and Member of the RANZCR Ultrasound Committee. He helped coordinate the ultrasound component of imaging services at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, and is co-author of ‘Atlas of Imaging in Sports Medicine’, first published 1998 and recently updated in 2007 as a 2nd edition international textbook that has become a popular reference used in daily clinical practice by many radiologists, sports physicians and physiotherapists around the world. Over the last 5 years Dr Read has practised exclusively at Castlereagh Sports Imaging as a subspecialised musculoskeletal radiologist with special expertise and extensive experience in all imaging modalities.
