SINAPSE serves as the node for research imaging activity in Scotland, encompassing research across numerous disciplines using MRI, CT, PET, SPECT, EEG, MEG, ultrasound, and human optical imaging.

The breadth of expertise across imaging applications is balanced by ongoing activities within the following SINAPSE Topic Groups:


 

Molecular Imaging

SPECT: [123I]-beta-CIT uptake in the midbrain (arrows) showing the blocking of serotonin transporters by an antidepressant drug (Image credit: Dr Sally Pimlott, University of Glasgow)


The SINAPSE Molecular Imaging group brings together researchers whose work includes PET imaging, SPECT imaging, radiochemistry, and radiopharmacy.

Lead: Dr Sally Pimlott

Deputy Leads: Maria Clara Liuzzi and Kotryna Baronaite

 

 

Image Analysis

Retinal Imaging: Probability map of the retinal vasculature taken using an ultra widefield scanning laser ophthalmoscope (Image credit: Dr Tom MacGillivray, University of Edinburgh)


The SINAPSE Image Analysis group brings together researchers whose work includes processing, analysing, and developing software packages for medical imaging data.

Lead: Dr Gordon Waiter

Deputy Lead: Dr Islem Rekik

 

 

Ultrasound

The SINAPSE Ultrasound group brings together researchers whose work includes medical ultrasound applications. Its members participate in meetings organised by the Scottish Ultrasound Group.

Lead: Prof George Corner

Deputy Lead: Conor MacDonald
