Advanced biomedical imaging

State-of-the-art biomedical imaging provides a powerful tool for visualising biomedical processes, leading to early diagnosis and interventions. Professor Mark Lythgoe tells us more about imaging facilities at the UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI).

Imaging solutions to meet today's medical challenges

Scan of heart

CABI is one of the most advanced preclinical imaging facilities in the world. Its pioneering capabilities provide imaging solutions to help solve current medical challenges.

It has a unique combination of twelve state-of-the-art imaging modalities to advance early diagnosis and interventions, and is located in the heart of the UCL campus.

Part of the UCL Division of Medicine, CABI aims to establish an integrated strategy for the development of novel biomedical imaging technologies to further understand the mechanisms of disease and develop therapeutic strategies.

Current research

Current research taking place at CABI includes:

  • Biomarker development for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease
