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

Professor Donald Hadley

Position: Professor in Radiology (Hon)


I am involved a range of investigations into the theme of central nervous system injury: its causes, repair mechanisms and outcome; how they might be visualized and measured objectively by neuroimaging at each stage particularly in relation to their response to therapy. These insults to the brain and spinal cord range through trauma, stroke, demyelination and epilepsy to the growth of neoplasms. I am using investigations such as MRI, MRS fMRI, diffusion and perfusion in addition to radionucleotide SPECT scanning and PET. I am interested in the ethics of research imaging and the safety aspects of magnetic resonance and ionising radiation.
