Specialist MRI for research


Our imaging service is delivered from our high-end designer facility where visitors are supported and cared for by a dedicated team of specialist radiographers, administration staff and healthcare assistants.

The Chenies Mews Imaging Centre hosts two magnet systems which are both available for research (commercial and academic) use.  Both systems are supported by the very latest in post processing hardware and software.


Siemens Magnetom Prisma


Our Magnetom Prisma offers a unique 3T platform from which to tackle the most demanding of MRI examinations.  This robust scanner offers maximum performance, providing the user with an unrivalled opportunity to capitalise fully on the time spent on the magnet, whilst also allowing us to push the boundaries of modern imaging to create bespoke sequences for new applications.  With its practically unlimited imaging and innovation capabilities, we can provide the full complement of techniques to answer questions on functionality, physiology, morphometry, metabolism and quantitative MRI.
