Sub-specialty training responsibilities

  1. 1. MRTS TRAINING DEPARTMENTS 1. Imaging Science – Academic Unit – UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER The Unit is part of the Research Group of Imaging Science of the Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences (FMHS) which comprises Clinical Radiology and Medical Biophysics. In 2007 Imaging Science was amalgamated with the Cancer Research Group to form the Research School of Cancer and Imaging Sciences in FMHS in the University of Manchester. Academic imaging is therefore currently spread across the city in the teaching hospitals affiliated to the University. The Unit in the Stopford Medical School, which has had patient activity since it was established in 1975, moved most of this into the adjacent Trusts in early 2008. The only scanning facilities which remain on the University site will be a mobile Osteoporosis Clinical and Research Unit (housing DXA Hologic 4500 Discovery and Stratec XCT 2000 pQCT scanners in a 6.5 tonnes, 28ft customised truck). The current static bone densitometry scanners (1 GE Lunar Prodigy; 1 Hologic QDR 4500 and 1 Stratec pQCT) will move to the radiology department of the Manchester Royal Infirmary in January 2008. In May 2003 the University installed a new 1.5 Tesla MR scanner into the Wellcome Millennium Clinical Research Facility (WCRF). In January 2004, a University high field 3 Tesla MR scanner was installed at Hope Hospital. The University’s Wolfson Molecular Imaging Centre (WMIC) is now completed on the Christie Hospital site and contains animal and human PET/CT facilities and a cyclotron. A 1.5 Tesla scanner is being installed at WMIC in the 2nd quarter of 2008. The Unit is involved in many multi-disciplinary research projects. There is strong encouragement to StRs/SpRs to undertake research, and to this end computer facilities have been provided for trainees (room 1.823). Most of the teaching takes place in this Unit (Conference Room 1.825 and 1.609) and there are excellent AV facilities, including a new LCD projector (installed 2010) for projecting images from computer, video or camera source, and other equipment to make slides and posters for scientific presentations. There is a reference library (Room G528A), with radiology journals and textbooks. For access, your ID swipe card will need to be validated by Ms Shelagh Stedman (tel: 275 5131, e-mail: Strong links exist not only with clinical departments, but also with pre- and para-clinical disciplines, including Medical Biophysics. The University Unit is responsible for providing the first three years of training of the FRCR course, since this is a part-time taught course based in the University of Manchester.
