The Division of Imaging Sciences and Biomedical Engineering is at the forefront of research, development, education and training in all aspects of medical imaging. Our resources include the new CRUK/EPSRC Comprehensive Cancer Imaging Centre and the King’s Centre of Excellence in Medical Engineering funded by the Wellcome Trust and EPSRC.
Medical Imaging is one of the most important diagnostic tools of modern medicine, offering an opportunity to see internal structure, organ functions, and even cell and molecular processes related to disease.
Imaging techniques have evolved from planar X-ray imaging in the late nineteenth century to a multitude of techniques using X-rays, radioisotopes, magnetic resonance, ultrasound, and visible and infrared light.
The development and clinical application of these methods needs advanced skills and ideas from experts: not just in medicine but in a wide range of disciplines, including physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, engineering and computing.
Teaching in medical imaging is provided not only by the scientific and teaching staff of King’s College London but also by scientists and clinicians working with and for the NHS. It draws on experts from many leading research and service groups within Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals and associated university hospitals, as well as the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Institute of Cancer Research.
A qualification from the Division of Imaging Sciences and Biomedical Engineering will equip you to join the next generation of interdisciplinary scientists and clinicians taking medical imaging forward.
