The UCL Centre for Medical Imaging manages a 3T Philips Ingenia MR scanner located in the MacMillan Cancer Centre. This scanner has paid-for time available to develop new techniques and sequences for both cancer and non-cancer applications. CMI also has collaborations across UCL and UCLH with imaging facilities that include; a Siemens mMR biograph PET-MR scanner, Philips and Siemens 1.5T and 3T MR scanners and a 1.5T Philips Ingenia Ambition scanner associated with the newly opened Proton Beam Therapy centre.
For MR image reconstruction, along with colleagues at the UCL Institute of Neurology, we have access to the Gyrotools ReconFrame software (https://gyrotools.com/gt/index.php/products/reconframe) and vendor-specific reconstruction code. We also are co-investigators on the EPSRC-funded SyneRBI (https://www.ccpsynerbi.ac.uk ) reconstruction project.
Image analysis within CMI uses a variety of tools including OsiriX and Horos, MIM and many bespoke MATLAB packages. We work closely with colleagues in the UCL Centre for Medical Image Computing ( https://www.ucl.ac.uk/medical-image-computing ) and the SME Motilent ( https://www.motilent.co.uk ).
