We want to acheive a new medical era where every individual will receive the right test at the right time. Tailored imaging tests will detect subtle abnormalities before they cause problems and provide the relevant anatomical and physiological information to forecast the treatment that is best for that individual.
Nottingham has led the world in developing the technology for this vision - MRI. We will now lead a further step change based on advances in imaging technology, big data analysis and biophysical modelling. This programme will provide the tools to secure personalised precision healthcare for major causes of disability. We will focus on depression, dementia, and chronic diseases of the lungs, liver, gut and musculo-skeletal system.
