UCLH have two newly installed Philips 3T MRI scanners, the first jointly funded by UCLH and the National Institute for Health Research Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre (NIHR/CBRC) and second by the Wolfson Foundation with dedicated research time to enable scientists and clinicians to work together on translational research projects with direct benefit to patients. 

The equipment provides detailed, high definition images of tissue - without the patient being exposed to ionising radiation. Clinical and research teams share the facility 50/50 and applications are now being accepted for research projects. 

For more information about the application process, contact 3Tresearchimagingrequests@uclh.nhs.uk

Gastrointestinal Motility Quantification


Quantification of enteric motility using MRI

Aberrant intestinal motility is seen in a very wide range of disease including structural disorders such a Crohn’s disease and systematic diseases such as autonomic failure and Parkinson’s disease. We have developed novel software to quantify enteric motility in health and disease. Collaborators include Nottingham University.

Located within the Macmillan Cancer Centre, UCH has the UK's first clinical, whole body and truly simultaneous combined PET and MRI system. A team of 4 PhD students, funded by Siemens and UCL, and 4 PostDoctoral Research Associates funded by an EPSRC grant are researching methods to exploit the true simultaneity of this system.
