Professor Moon is an internationally recognised leader in cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). His contributions to CMR have enabled the UK to remain at the centre of global research and clinical applications.

He has recently set up four MRI units (currently delivering a combined annual volume of approximately 12,500 CMR scans), is a past President of British Society of CMR, led the national tariff negotiations for CMR and leads multiple important cross-institutional UK CMR research collaborations.

Globally he has widened access to CMR via his work with RapidCMR in low- and middle-income countries in Peru, Argentina, Cuba, India, and South Africa where the focus was on empowering local clinicians and centres to ensure that the services were sustainable, delivering the clinical utility to patients’ long term.

He is also a prolific lecturer who has contributed hundreds of recorded lectures to the British Society of CMR.
