Congratulations to Dr Tom MacGillivray of Edinburgh University and his colleagues Dr Neeraj Dhaun and Prof Bal Dhillon who also work in NHS Lothian, who are the recipients of the 2021 CSO Award for Clinical Imaging Innovation and Partnership.

The project “Tracking kidney disease through the eye: translating research to build an innovate clinical imaging service”, in partnership with Heidelberg Engineering, will develop bedside retinal scanning of patients suffering from kidney disease as a clinical tool to track the disease and reduce the need to move unwell patients into ophthalmology suites.

The award presents £10,000 towards the study from the Chief Scientist Office and is for facilitating innovative, clinically focused imaging developments in the SINAPSE network.
