Multimodal imaging

The Cancer Imaging Group uses and develops several imaging modalities, which in combination provide a powerful, multi-dimensional toolkit for probing tumour physiology. This includes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), single photon emission tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), x-ray computed tomography (CT), photoacoustic imaging, optical and fluorescence microscopy and ultrasound. Combining images can often provide greater information than each modality can provide individually, and we have developed hardware using 3D printing for transferring subjects between scanners and software for overlaying data.
