AB25 2ZD Aberdeen
The world’s first MRI scan of a patient was done in 1980, using
Aberdeen University’s “Mark-I” scanner. Now a team of scientists
at the University’s Medical School has built a new kind of scanner
called “Fast-Field-Cycling” MRI, which could provide earlier
diagnosis of many diseases.

This event is a unique opportunity to see f the original Mark-I scanner in Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and to visit the laboratory where the world’s only prototype FFC-MRI scanner has been built. Experts will be on hand to explain the scanning technology, to answer questions and to guide tours to see the scanners.
