Edinburgh Imaging Facility - RIE

This facility is located within the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh building, adjacent to A&E & close to the Division of Clinical Neurosciences (DCN) at Little France.

Edinburgh Imaging Facility RIE
Overview

The Edinburgh Imaging Facility RIE delivers clinical & academic research imaging in humans.

Clinically, we collaborate closely with NHS Lothian because we are co-located on the Little France campus with the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

Physically we are attached to the RIE hospital & adjacent to the Division of Clinical Neurosciences building, which positions us ideally for acute / emergency & subacute imaging studies.

A team of multidisciplinary imaging scientists advises on all aspects of the implementation & design of imaging protocols for patients & study participants.

 

Research

Our history means the main focus of our research is of the brain & nervous system, including:

A major goal is to reduce the burden of common neurological disorders.

We provide very high quality MR scans, ranging from single simple scans, through to coordinated, multi-centre, global clinical trials.

Our location adjacent to the RIE A&E department means we are developing research into other body systems & pathologies.
