She finalized a fellowship in General Radiology from the Royal Marsden Hospital in Surrey, UK, and a two-year fellowship in Neuroradiology, followed by a Body MR fellowship from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.

Dr. Glastonbury’s particular interest is in the area of the head and neck malignancies and the detection of nodal disease, which is significantly important with treatment decisions for patients with head and neck tumors. Dr. Glastonbury’s goals are to better determine ways in which people are most likely to misinterpret films and find solutions in preventing radiology errors during diagnosis. She works closely with the Radiation Oncologists and Head and Neck surgeons on a weekly basis to improve the care of head and neck cancer patients.

Dr. Glastonbury is Editor-in-Chief for a new textbook Specialty Imaging: Head and Neck Cancer which was published in December 2012. She has written multiple chapters in the radiology textbook Diagnostic Imaging: Head and Neck that was published in September 2004 and is Co-Editor and second author for the second edition of this textbook in 2010. She is also Co-Editor and second author of Expert Differential Diagnosis – Head and Neck, which was published in April 2009. In April 2012, Dr. Glastonbury completed a review from the past 10 years of head and neck tumor imaging articles in the American Journal of Neuroradiology. Adding to her success, she has also written and published 73 articles and 10 book chapters.
