Thanks to the generousilty of numerous funding agencies and charities, Edinburgh Imaging now houses 6 scanners dedicated to research, across 3 imaging facilities, making it one of the largest networks in Europe with ties to clinical care. Their new Edinburgh Imaging facility at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, is purpose built and houses the 3T Siemens Magnetom Prisma, whilst the recently expanded Edinburgh Imaging facility at the Queen's Medical Research Institute, Little France, houses the Siemens Biograph mMR system, which is the first PET-MR scanner installed in Scotland. Both these facilities were officially opened by the University’s Chancellor, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal on Tuesday 14 February 2017.

The Directors of Edinburgh Imaging would like to celebrate these fantastic imaging facilities with all funders, staff and associated clinicians & researchers, by hosting the Edinburgh Imaging Opening Symposium, on 30th June 2017.

There are superb invited speakers and local speakers, including Dr Chris Boesch (Zurich), Dr Zahi Fayad (New York) and Dr Steve Williams (London) who will cover a wide range of research, including molecular imaging, cardiovascular imaging, neuroimaging and retinal imaging.

Whilst the symposium is free to all those invited, places will be limited, so please register ASAP to ensure your ticket.

Closing date for registration is 9th June 2017.
