The imaging centre houses a 3T Siemens Magnetom MRI Scanner on the ground floor within the Institute of Life Science 2 building. It is the latest Siemens 3T Magnetom Skyra MRI scanner, with a wider (70cm) and shorter (173cm) bore to aid in participant compliance and comfort, without compromising image quality. We have a large collection of high-density coils for neuro, body and orthopaedic scanning, together with the TIM 4th generation system with multi-channel to support ultra-high density coils. The dockable table with integrated spine coils.

The MRI suite hardware includes an infusion pump for IV injections and fMRI screen and responses boxes. CIF is an approved IDEA software user, which will allow bespoke scanning protocols to be generated. Facilities for data analysis and high performance computing are also available.
