Precision Imaging Discover a world of innovation and beyond

The University of Nottingham is the home of MRI.

Our pioneering invention continues to transform lives and medical care across the world. MRI, which grew from an idea in our 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.
