Dr John McGhee
DJCAD, University of Dundee
A practicing 3D artist, designer, researcher and programme director based at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD), University of Dundee. I am currently investigating the application of 3-D computer animation and visualisation techniques in clinical imaging. My work explores methods and techniques of interpreting and mediating clinical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data. I am particularly interested in the interaction space between health professionals and patients. My research investigates the potential for digital 3-D computer-based strategies to engage patients through alternative approaches to data visualisation. The research also investigates the implications of the 3-D CGI artist’s intervention in clinical imaging.
Current research projects:
- CSO funded ‘Development of Interventions to Increase Physical Activity Among Inactive Young People with Long-term Conditions: MRC Complex Intervention Framework Phase I Study using Asthma as an Exemplar’. A Co-Investigator on a multi-institutional joint project between University of Dundee, University of St Andrews, University of Stirling, University of Edinburgh and University of Newcastle.
- AHRC/SFC Knowledge Exchange Programme: A Healthier Scotland : a Co-Investigator on the Visualising the invisible project: developing innovative approaches to visualisation to help NHS staff prevent and control Healthcare Associated Infections. The research is a multi-institutional project between Glasgow School of Art and Grays School of Art, Robert Gordon University, DJCAD University of Dundee and NHS Grampian.
- SINAPSE INTERACT- a funded research project exploring 3D computer visualisation and stereoscopic projection (4D) as a means of widening access for patients to understand diagnostic imaging data. Joint grant with School of Medicine, University of Dundee.
