Bioimaging sciences have played a vital role in improving human life. A wide range of imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET), ultrasound and optical imaging are now important tools for the early detection of disease, understanding basic molecular aspects of living organisms and the evaluation of medical treatment.
This one-year MRes course covers the fundamentals of modern imaging methodologies, including their techniques and application within medicine and the pharmaceutical industry, along with the chemistry behind imaging agents and biomarkers.
Imperial's research strength in imaging sciences is recognised both nationally and internationally, as exemplified by the creation of Imperial's Imaging Sciences Centre (ISC).
The course will progress interdisciplinary development in imaging sciences and create a multidisciplinary team involving chemists, immunologists, radiologists, image scientists, physicists, biomedical scientists and computer scientists.
