He has additional appointments at ASDOH as well as with the Research and Grants Office.Dr. Makin obtained his doctorate in Biomedical Engineering from University of Texas at Austin, "Diplom Ingenieur" Bioengineering from Fachhochschule Hamburg Germany, and bachelor of Medicine and bachelor of Surgery (MBBS – MD equivalent), from Jiwaji University, India. He is also an accredited medical sonographer(RDMS).

Dr. Makin's scientific expertise is in bioinstrumentation, the basic and applied research of energy-based medical devices, ultrasound-tissue interaction, and ultrasound wave propagation. He has been involved in numerous projects in academia and private industry to develop research programs and capabilities spanning the spectrum for "benchtop-toclinic."

Dr. Makin is an active member of several medical and engineering professional societies, and has presented several invited talks and workshops. He has co-authored over 25 peerreviewed papers and proceedings, and has 22 issued patents.


During my primary medical studies at Pretoria University, South Africa, I developed a keen interest in the Musculoskeletal System, which set me on the path of searching out a better understanding of anatomy and the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system and injuries to it. When offered the opportunity to study and do general ultrasound in 1995, I naturally attempted to apply the modality to the Musculoskeletal system. By 1997 I have successfully pioneered Musculoskeletel ultrasound as a trustworthy modality in South Africa and made the importance of a multi-disciplinary involvement one of the core values. In 1998 I launched, the first of many, Annual National Musculoskeletel Ultrasound training conference in South African and have been involved in training and education of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound ever since. After attending my first MUSoc. meeting in Portofino, Italy in September 1997, I was privileged to join the ranks of the Faculty in later years.

My purpose always was and still is to improve the understanding, standard and quality of ultrasound assessment of the Musculoskeletal system.


I completed an internship in 1994 at Pretoria Academic Hospital (South Africa), followed by one year as a medical officer at the Orthopaedics Department of 1-Military Hospital in Pretoria. My Registrar training was completed from 1996-2000 in Radiology, after which I undertook a short MRI Fellowship before moving to Australia in 2001. I am head of Woman’s imaging in Queensland X/Ray, Brisbane.

My areas of special interest are: Musculoskeletal ultrasound and intervention, infant hip ultrasound and breast MRI. I frequently lecture in my areas of interest and am also actively involved in education of Fellows and Registrars.


I have been an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine at HFH in Detroit MI for 27years. I began working VanHolsbeeck, using U/S for my patients for diagnostic purposes for almost that entire time. Throughout my career worked with the Detroit Red Wings, professional ice hockey team and Detroit Rockers and Detroit Ignition, profe indoor soccer teams. I have taken care of several local high schools for over 20years.
