Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which was invented at The University of Nottingham by Nobel laureate Sir Peter Mansfield, has had a major impact on medical science.
Our current research focuses on the development and application of new techniques and hardware for MR imaging and spectroscopy (MRS), often via multidisciplinary collaboration.
Current projects include:
- Development of a seven Tesla human MRI system
- Investigation of human brain function using functional MRI/S
- Applying novel MRI techniques to monitoring human physiology
- MR microscopy
- Use of hyper-polarised noble gases in MRI of the lungs
- Development and application of dynamic nuclear polarization
