Researchers from the Translational Imaging Group and the Dementia Research Centre gave visitors a view through the ‘window into the brain’ at the Science Museum’s April Late event, exploring dementia and neuroscience.

 

PintofSciencelogoDon't miss the chance to hear Prof Donald Peebles and Dr Dan Stoyanov talk at this year's Pint of Science - the latest UCL research and a wide selection of beers on tap in a lovely venue in Belsize Park, the perfect mid-week antidote: Wed 25 May 2016.

Learn about the unique environment inside the womb and how the latest technology is being used to create a bespoke surgical platform for this field. During the event there will be live demos from the robotics lab and special Pint of Science goodies to be won! Buy Tickets

The Preterm Imaging Team are co-organising a MICCAI satellite workshop to discuss image analysis techniques applied to the preterm, perinatal and paediatric setting. Paper submission is now open.

This grant will assist Dr. Bergeles in his research on novel endoscopes, complementing the capabilities of state-of-the-art endoscopic image processing. The support of the AMS Springboard grant lasts for 2 years.

NiftyFit has been made available as a joint publication and software release. This software incorporates model-fitting functionality for the estimation of microstructural and microvascular characteristics from diffusion-weighted imaging (Zach), blood perfusion and cerebral blood flow from ASL (David) and T1 relaxometry, and g-ratio measurement from diffusion and T2 relaxometry (part of the Preterm Imaging Project). In future it will be extended to functional connectivity measurement from fMRI (Michael). Quantitative measurements made by the fitting are relevant for diagnosis, estimation of disease progression, and the monitoring of disease-modifying treatments and the software has already supported a number of existing publications.
