Centre for Cancer Imaging

The Centre for Cancer Imaging at The Institute for Cancer Research provides scientists with the latest in imaging technologies – providing greater knowledge than ever before to understand cancer’s development and response to treatment – as a means of accelerating the discovery of new therapies.

The centre houses 130 imaging researchers from a range of disciplines. It provides these scientists with the very latest in imaging technologies – including various kinds of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound and positron emission tomograph scanners – allowing scientists to image tumours and their biological features in a non-invasive way.

The CCI will be using an approach called multi-modality imaging, where researchers combine different imaging techniques such as MRI and ultrasound – providing greater depth and breadth of knowledge than use of a single imaging technique alone.
