Infection and Inflammation Imaging

Medical Imaging plays a major role in diseases characterised by inflammation, infection or abnormal immunology. UCL is pioneering development of medical imaging in this field and has in place a robust infrastructure across the campus linking pre-clinical and clinical research groupings. We have a particular emphasis on clinical translation in high impact disease areas and by way of example have programs investigating novel imaging techniques, computational models of biological systems and automated processing of complex imaging data. The program is spread throughout UCL Partners harnessing the word leading clinical expertise with rich patient cohorts. There are a number of key areas in urgent need of development and innovation, such as in Crohn’s disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Barrett's oesophagus, or liver fibrosis and cirrhosis.
