The University of Edinburgh plays host to major clinical imaging research facilities based at the Queen's Medical Research Institute and the Western General Hospital. Facilities include significant image analysis and data management equipment, along with MRI scanners, PET scanners and a Cyclotron/Radiochemistry facility.

Edinburgh Imaging was established to bring together the imaging community across Edinburgh, to allow the sharing of knowledge, skills and facilities in order to advance biological knowledge from cradle to grave. Edinburgh Imaging is a virtual hub of expertise on medical imaging, pre-clinical imaging, neuroimaging for research, microscopy and imaging science education. Members of Edinburgh Imaging have worked together to develop the Edinburgh Imaging Academy (EIA), which is an online educational portal.

  • Data extraction and analysis of the systematic search on gender differences on brain MRI structures and connectivity 

    Martin, Sarah; Valdés Hernández, Maria
    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an invaluable imaging technique used in medicine, generating images of structures inside the body. The images produced are used to examine almost any part of the body and are essential ...
  • Summary of the open source clinical studies up to May 2017 that perform texture analyses on Dynamic Contrast Enhanced (DCE)-MRI 

    Valdés Hernández, Maria; González Castro, Victor
    This is a Table with the Results of the systematic search in PubMed and Web of Science of open source clinical studies published up to May 2017, where texture analysis has been used in the analysis of Dynamic Contract ...
  • Examples of Automated Cortical Parcellation 

    Mikhael, Shadia
    The figures presented show examples of anatomical variability and the resulting automated parcellation from different software (also included a diagram of our search for such software). Software packages for cortical ...
  • SUPERSEDED - Analysis of 4 Cortical Parcellation Protocols 

    Mikhael, Shadia
    ## This item has been superseded by the one which can be found at http://dx.doi.org/10.7488/ds/1983 . ## Software packages for cortical parcellation generally combine tools which segment the brain into various regions, or ...
  • LIMO EEG v1.5 

    LIMO Team; Pernet, Cyril; Rousselet, Guillaume; Gaspar, Carl; Chauveau, Nicolas
    Magnetic- and electric-evoked brain responses have traditionally been analyzed by comparing the peaks or mean amplitudes of signals from selected channels and averaged across trials. More recently, tools have been developed ...

  • Hippocampal manual segmentation 

    Anblagan, Devasuda; Deary, Ian J; Wardlaw, Joanna
    When analyzing specific parts of the brain (here a region called the hippocampus, known to be involved in memory), it is often necessary to manually delineate these regions. The manual tracing here illustrates hippocampu ...
