Modern imaging techniques have revolutionized many aspects of medicine and clinical
research by providing more accurate diagnosis, guidance of surgical procedures and
greater understanding of disease processes.
Edinburgh Clinical Research Facility
supports research in this area through its Imaging Core, which encompasses
the Edinburgh Imaging facility (WGH),
the Edinburgh Imaging facility (QMRI),
the Edinburgh Imaging facility (RIE)
and our Image Analysis team.

Choosing the right imaging facility
Image Analysis is central to conducting successful and meaningful medical imaging
research projects. Our image analysis facilities are equipped with high-spec workstations
and specialised software packages.
Our team are happy to share their expertise in
image processing, manipulation and quantification and successfully train researchers
and investigators in the use of specialised techniques. They also participate in
the scientific work of research projects, and develop new image processing software
and analysis methods.
