The primary research theme within the Medical Imaging group is musculoskeletal imaging and associated pathophysiology.
Collaborations are held internally with sports science, engineering, physics and computer science in addition to external collaborations with local clinicians in emergency medicine and orthopaedics as well as other higher education institutions nationally and internationally.
There is a particular interest in osteoporosis and bone health in young and older populations and in diseases such as diabetes. Members of the group also have interests in radiation doses and imaging in obesity and dose reduction. There are strengthening collaborations and interest in the development and or testing of computer aided detection software to support trauma imaging.
The group underpin their projects with public and patient involvement and also have a research areas understanding patients’ perceptions of their imaging experiences and how to optimise these.
