Innovative MR technology puts the University of Glasgow at forefront of brain imaging research

Posted in News Review on 14th Aug 2015

ACNRJA15-31The University of Glasgow has recently received significant external funding to support investment in state-of-the-art research facilities. This includes two high-resolution imaging systems from Siemens Healthcare with a primary initial focus on brain research. The technology will provide detailed insights into the brain’s structure, function and biochemistry in order to find causes and new treatments into various conditions. The technology includes a powerful MAGNETOM® 7T MR system and a MAGNETOM 3T MR.

Professor Anna Dominiczak, Vice Principal and Head of the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences at the University of Glasgow said: “These systems will provide us with unrivalled imaging capability and drastically enhance the quality of research carried out in Glasgow. This initiative is testament to the strength of the partnership between academia, the NHS and industry that we have in the city.”
