Mr Robert Mast
BSc Physiotherapy HCPC, MCSP, PgCert Musculoskeletal Sonography, Non Medical prescriber
Rob trained and qualified as a physiotherapist through the HvA in Amsterdam in 1993.
He has been working for Homerton University Hospital as an Extended Scope Physiotherapist in the primary care setting since 2004. He works one day per week in the Radiology Department of Homerton University Hospital as an MSK sonographer both for diagnostics as well as for carrying out interventional procedures.
Rob obtained a Pg.Cert. in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound through Canterbury and Christchurch University. He is an experienced tutor on Ultrasound courses teaching fellow AHPs and medical professionals in MSK ultrasound diagnostics as well as ultrasound guided interventions. He is a visiting lecturer at the MSK Ultrasound module at Canterbury and Christchurch University. For many years presented the Ultrasound component of the MSK imaging module for Allied Health Professionals at London Southbank University.
MSK ultrasound is an important adjunct to his clinical practice and it has aided the accuracy of clinical diagnoses and has allowed him to carry out more precise ultrasound guided interventional procedures such as injections and joint aspirations. He has a special interest in using ultrasound to obtain images of msk structures that are technically challenging to visualise with ultrasound. Rob obtained his practice certificate as a non-medical prescriber in 2014 through the University of Hertfordshire. He has since done a conversion module via London Southbank University to become an Independent prescriber.
Rob also works part-time at Sonoscope, providing a private service for ultrasound guided MSK injections in central London.
