Open-Lab: MRI Scanners Past and Future (BAW)

External Event - 17th Mar 2018

Time: 10am - 12pm

Free, no booking required

Venue: Suttie Centre, Foresterhill Campus, AB25 2ZD

The world’s first MRI scan of a patient was done in 1980, using Aberdeen University’s “Mark-I” scanner. Now a team of scientists at the University’s Medical School has built a new kind of scanner called “Fast-Field-Cycling” MRI, which could provide earlier diagnosis of many diseases. This event is a unique opportunity to see for yourself the original Mark-I scanner in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and to visit the laboratory where the world’s only prototype FFC-MRI scanner has been built.

Experts will be on hand to explain the scanning technology, to answer questions and to guide tours to see the scanners.
