eLearning

SINAPSE experts from around Scotland have developed ten online modules designed to explain medical imaging. They are freely available and are intended for non-specialists.


Edinburgh Imaging Academy at the University of Edinburgh offers the following online programmes through a virtual learning environment:

Neuroimaging for Research MSc/Dip/Cert

Imaging MSc/Dip/Cert

PET-MR Principles & Applications Cert

Applied Medical Image Analysis Cert

Online Short Courses

Dr Kristin Flegal

Position: Senior Project Manager for UKRI SiPF Living Laboratory (Advanced Imaging workstream)

Interests:

I worked as the SINAPSE Lead Scientist from June 2015 until April 2021. My background is in Psychology with a concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience, through which I gained experience conducting fMRI neuroimaging research.

Since May 2021 I have taken up the role of Senior Project Manager responsible for the Advanced Imaging workstream of the UKRI SiPF Living Laboratory programme.

Institute: University of Glasgow

Department: Imaging Centre of Excellence
