AI-enabled healthcare provides early patient diagnoses

Innovations in bio-medical engineering and body imaging resulting in early diagnosis to patients.

Developments throughout engineering are transforming modern healthcare. The University’s School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences, part of the Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine, has created a world-leading research environment for the development and implementation of advanced healthcare engineering to combat a range of diseases.

The School’s work covers medical imaging, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI). Innovative applications include deploying six clinical MRI scanners and the UK’s first ultra-powerful cyclotron-supported PET-MRI scanner. These academic advances directly translate into improved patient care, reaching around 11,000 people a year. The School’s work also delivers reduced costs to the NHS as a by-product.
