Edinburgh Imaging

28 Jun 18. SINAPSE success

A successful day at the SINAPSE ASM in Edinburgh.


Celebrating 10 years of SINAPSE, the 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting  was held at the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh on Monday, 25 June 2018. All attendees thought the meeting was a huge success, so special thanks go to Kristen and team.

All the presentations were extremely interesting and kept the audience abreast of developments in clinical and experimental imaging, with a focus on research based around MRI, CT, PET, SPECT, EEG, MEG, ultrasound, and human optical imaging.

Congratulations to all those who won awards, in particular those from Edinburgh!
