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
