Welcome to the Department of Radiology Website
We strive to be an internationally competitive department undertaking innovative research in medical imaging. We have a team of dedicated academic radiologists working with imaging scientists with an active doctoral and post-doctoral research programme. We have extensive facilities across the Clinical School, including one 3T MRI, four 1.5T MRI machines, PET CT and four CT machines on which we undertake research. There is a large ultrasound department and a nuclear medicine facility. We have extensive collaborations with the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre (WBIC) which undertakes predominantly neuro-imaging on the 70, 3T MR machines and a PET MR machine.
The cyclotron and radiochemistry facility produce a wide range of radiotracers giving us extensive opportunities for innovative research in clinical imaging. Our links with the pre-clinical facilities in the West Forvie Building and in the Cancer Institute allow us to translate novel techniques into clinical practice.
We benefit from the excellent research platforms in the clinical specialities across the clinical campus as well as the extensive expertise in imaging in the Cavendish Laboratory, Department of Engineering and the Department of Astronomy.
