Topic Groups

Topic Groups

 

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

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

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
