 A Molecular Medicine Ireland (MMI) / Centre for Advanced Medical Imaging (CAMI) workshop

The purpose of this workshop is to describe the potential of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as a research tool in basic and clinical research. MRI allows high resolution imaging of structures and functions in the body without the use of ionising radiation. The high acceptability and low risk of MRI make it very suitable for imaging patient and volunteer cohorts in research studies. Applications include tumour imaging, investigation of cardiovascular function and imaging of neural activity. MRI techniques can follow a concept from an animal model right through to human clinical applications.

The opening of the HRB funded Centre for Advanced Medical Imaging (CAMI) at St. James’s Hospital has made available a hospital based, state of the art human MRI system dedicated purely to research studies. This workshop is designed to help delegates establish how MRI could assist in their current or future research studies.
