Course content

The Division brings together physicists, chemists, biologists, mathematicians, computer scientists and clinicians working in medical imaging and image-guided therapy into five departments: Cardiovascular Imaging, Cancer Imaging, Biomedical Engineering, Imaging Chemistry and Biology, and Perinatal Imaging and Health. We are keen to recruit PhD students from all these disciplines.

All imaging modalities are studied including MR, X-ray, CT, ultrasound, PET and SPECT as well as therapeutic nuclear medicine. Ongoing projects range from the development of new imaging agents and technology and computational image analysis and modelling, through to the clinical assessment of new imaging methods.

We have a wide range of work from studies of the basic science of imaging to research into specific clinical areas such as cardiology, neuropsychiatry, oncology, radiotherapy and surgery. Our work is carried out in close collaboration with other groups within the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine and associated hospitals.
