Magnetic resonance imaging: scientific research and development


The University is a world leader in the development of magnetic resonance imaging as a fundamental tool in medical diagnosis, and also for wider industrial application. This renowned research continues to pioneer and develop new techniques and applications. The University was involved in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) ever since development began in the 1970s and is now home to the largest physics-based academic MR group in the world with much of its work focusing on high-speed imaging.
