Three keynote speakers

We heard from Prof Chris Boesch, Zurich in our metabolic imaging session; from Prof Zahi Fayad, New York, in our cardiovascular disease session & Prof Steve Williams, London, in our neurological disease session.

Inspiring talks from members

Our 12 Edinburgh Imaging members engaged us all with inspiring presentations of their innovative research, on a range of imaging related projects, including retinal imaging, optical imaging & using MRI for the evaluation of the healthy & unhealthy pregnant mother.
