The Medical Imaging Unit (MIU) in the School of Medicine is available for clinicians and scientists who wish to use MRI techniques to enhance their research using the state-of-the-art University facilities.
Launched in 2012, the Unit comprises MRI, PET CT and Gamma camera facilities and is housed within the University of Nottingham Medical School. We also provide access to a dedicated team of staff to facilitate a varied portfolio of imaging-based research.
PET-CT and SPECT-CT
Clinical studies are carried out in partnership with Nuclear Medicine and Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. PET-CT studies are undertaken at the Nottingham InHealth PET-CT centre at the Nottingham City Hospital Campus.
Gamma Scintigraphy Unit
The gamma camera unit is a dedicated clinical trial facility equipped with a Mediso X-ring gamma camera, that undertakes GMP production of custom manufactured formulations for radionuclide imaging. The unit carries out academic and commercial studies of GI function, drug delivery and tracer biodistribution.
The SPECT PET and Optical (SPOT) Imaging unit is situated in the Biomedical Services Unit of the Medical School. The unit has Mediso nanoSCAN PET-CT, nanoSPECT-CT, and a Caliper IVIS imaging unit.
The Imaging Unit has radiochemistry laboratory and quality control facilities for the development and production of radiopharmaceuticals to GMP standards for PET and SPECT imaging with radionuclides such as 18F, 111In, 99mTc, 123I.
