SPINlab Diamond Polariser
Cambridge has installed one of the world’s first clinical hyperpolarisers for carbon-13 MRI. Hyperpolarisation increases the signal-to-noise of carbon-13 on MRI by 10,000-100,000 fold and allows metabolism of 13C containing molecules to be detected and imaged in real-time. The project will explore applications of this technique in cancer imaging and has been funded by the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK, Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, the Cambridge Cancer Centre and Prostate Cancer UK. The metabolism of two molecules – pyruvate and fumarate – will be studied in glioma, lymphoma and breast and ovarian cancer.
The Department of Radiology has about twenty graduate students in total and usually accepts three or four new students each year. Like the PhD, the one-year MPhil in Radiology is entirely research-based. All students are part of a team run by an academic who is active in one or more of the Department’s current research themes .
The following academics are currently supervising students whose research falls into their specialist areas:
- Professor Fiona Gilbert (Breast Imaging, MRI, PET)
- Dr Tomasz Matys (Neuroradiology)
- Professor Ferdia Gallagher (Molecular Imaging, MRI, PET, Hyperpolarised MRI, Oncological Imaging, Hybrid Imaging)
- Dr Tristan Barrett (Prostate cancer Imaging, Genito-urinary Radiology)
- Professor Martin J Graves (MR Physics, PET/MR and Imaging informatics)
- Dr Luigi Aloj (Nuclear Medicine)
- Dr Jonathan Weir-McCall (Cardiothoracic Imaging)
