About the Precision Imaging Beacon

The University of Nottingham is the home of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This pioneering invention continues to transform lives and medical care across the world. MRI, which grew from an idea in the physics department 40 years ago, is now used in more than 60 million clinical examinations around the world every year.   

We have an internationally leading position in biomedical imaging research, and our advances in medical imaging are driving the development of personalised therapies in mental health and other chronic diseases.

We are driving the discovery and translation of new imaging tools which will transform non-invasive diagnosis, improve the outcomes for patients, and better evaluate the success of medical interventions. Our researchers have expertise across precision imaging – from mathematics and computer science, to physics and medicine.
