Clinical applications of medical imaging technology


Millions of people throughout the world benefit from the pioneering work carried out in the field of non-invasive medical imaging technology at the Department of Bio-Medical Physics and Bio-Engineering. Having developed the first instrument in the UK capable of capturing images of slices of the human body and displaying them on a computer, the Department has made important contributions to MRI technology as a clinical diagnostic technique as well as new applications and ophthalmic computer software for early detection of illnesses.
