"Our mission is clear; to apply the wonderful biological research performed on the UCL campus directly to overcome the diseases inflicting our patients here at University College Hospital and beyond. Being one of the most active clinical departments in Europe and committed to providing the highest imaging and therapeutic services to our patients.

The 21st century has placed imaging in a unique position amongst research and clinical tools. It is central to accurately diagnosing our patients as well as guiding our clinicians to the best treatment for each patient." - Prof. Ashley Groves

INM_LRES_Irfan.jpg "My vision is to provide deliver the highest quality clinical care by developing the latest cutting edge technologies in hybrid imaging, working in multidisciplinary partnership with colleagues in research and clinical practice, and supporting next generation of imaging doctors by promoting top quality education and training.- Dr. Irfan Kayani

 "With the success of PET CT, the introduction of integrated PET MRI undoubtedly would be the multimodality imaging system of future; combining anatomical, functional, metabolic and multi-parametric imaging. At present, it is difficult to propose the potential numerous clinical benefits it imposes, because of lack of clinical evidence. However, PET MRI is already proving to be clinically useful because of the development and clinical introduction of new PET tracer that would offer increased diagnostic accuracy with increased in specificity and sensitivity in assessing loco-regional oncology especially in head-neck cancer, male and female pelvis, liver, musculo-skeletal tumours and neurological diseases. I foresee a great potential in therapy planning and response assessment in comparison to the present available imaging modalities." - Dr. Rizwan Syed

"During the last two decades we have firstly seen the increase of new 
high resolution diagnostic imaging techniques, such as  Computed 
Tomography, with an increasing number of detectors and ultra thin 
slices; or new sophisticated Magnetic Resonance machines with ultra 
fast sequences and tissue characterization. We then moved to an era of 
hybrid machines which combined the high advantages of new technologies 
with functional information provided by Nuclear Medicine studies: PET 
CT and more recently PET MR which are now entering deeply into 
clinical routine allowing a simultaneous acquisition of different 

The next challenge of the future will be the further  development of 
these new all in one stop shop machines, enabling the provision of 
all morphological, tissue characterization and functional diagnostic 
information  in  combination with a large spectrum of non-invasive 
therapeutic procedures. 

It is to be hoped  that new modalities such as Focalized Ultrasound 
(HIFU), Chemotherapy microprobes, Selective Internal Radiation Therapy 
(SIRT), or Photodynamic therapy ( PDT) will be available in a solo 
machine, thus reducing diagnosis and treatment interval, recovery time 
and cost.
