PET-MR Principles and Applications (Online Learning)

Combined Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance (MR) is an imaging technology which allows information on metabolic function, physiology, and anatomy to be collected in a single scanning session for diagnostic and research purposes (e.g. investigating dementias & cancers). PET-MR scanners are increasingly being installed in clinical and research settings, but currently training in how to run and best use such facilities is limited, often requiring long periods of residency, away from work and personal commitments at home. The University of Edinburgh is among the few UK centres with a PET-MR scanner and personnel with the expertise in how to run and use it. This programme harnesses our expertise in imaging technology, which will allow learners to train in this field via an online learning environment.
