Work within the Imaging Sciences theme aims to improve health and wellbeing through creation and use of novel imaging and bioengineering.

We aim to transform diagnosis and treatment for cancer, cardiovascular and early life diseases through developing: novel imaging methods and analysis; their underlying mathematics and physical sciences; and scientific and medical translation.

The scope and capability of imaging sciences is increasing exponentially, and is now central to many aspects of medical practice, including diagnosis, stratification, therapeutic planning and intervention. Our comprehensive imaging infrastructure, closely integrated with NHS clinical services, is optimally placed not only to deliver research outputs but also to make the results of this work available to patients with minimum lead times
