Research underway on Scotland's first MR PET system in Edinburgh

March 2017 - Research underway on Scotland's first MR PET system in Edinburgh

Among the state-of-the-art medical imaging facilities recently opened at SINAPSE centres is the MR PET system at Edinburgh Imaging Facility QMRI, which is now being put to its first use for a clinical research study on stroke. Further details on the new scanner and how it will be used can be found here.
