Now a new generation of scanners has been designed and built here. Called “Fast Field-Cycling MRI”, the devices switch rapidly between strong and weak magnetic fields, generating extra diagnostic information for the doctors who read the scans. Hear from the team behind this new technology. They will explain how the FFC-MRI scanners work, and how clinical trials using a prototype scanner are already helping medical staff to see more about their patients’ condition.
This event is led by the members of a European consortium called IDentIFY, Improving Diagnosis by Fast Field-Cycling MRI. This €6.6M research project is funded through the EU Horizon 2020 Programme. The project involves partners from 9 sites across Europe, led by The University of Aberdeen.
The event is part of British Science Week. It is free and no booking is required. Go to the British Science Week web pages to view the full programme of events organised by the Aberdeen Branch of the British Science Association.
