What we do
The University's Imaging Facilities, which are located across sites in Manchester, offer researchers and clinicians access to leading-edge facilities, equipment and staff in order to produce high quality research that will inform the identification of effective new treatments and the targeted use of treatment for greatest patient benefit.
The Facilities have been recently extended with the addition of a new PET-MR scanner, which has been funded by the Medical Research Council as part of the Dementias Platform UK initiative.
The Imaging Facilities focuses its efforts on positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sciences and offers both clinical and preclinical scanning opportunities. It also, via the radiochemistry facility at the Wolfson Molecular Imaging Centre, has an ambitious radiotracer development programme for use in research studies.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging - MRI
The University has 3 MR scanners and a PET-MR scanner which act as an interface between clinical and academic research and imaging science.
Pre-clinical imaging at the University of Manchester
Pre-clinical imaging research undertaken at the University of Manchester investigates biology in health and disease with the aim of providing information that can be translated in to clinical studies.
