Liver / hepatic
Liver imaging research at Edinburgh Imaging, involves collaborative work to characterize various liver diseases, with the aim of reducing / minimizing invasive procedures in the diagnosis & management of these diseases.
Liver disease / cirrhosis
We image a range of liver diseases including cirrhosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, macrophage therapy, liver islet therapy, liver transplant & acute liver insult.
We focus on establishing an imaging biomarker for hepato-cellular carcinoma in the context of cirrhosis. The mixed modality technique of PET-MR currently holds the most promise in this regard.
