Centre for Medical Imaging

The University of Salford's world-class medical imaging facility.

The Centre for Medical Imaging, a world-class environment for teaching, learning, and research, with the opportunity to support clinical provision, has opened at the University of Salford. 

GE Healthcare have worked with the University to provide new equipment including the Revolution Maxima CT scanner, two Discovery static digital X-ray systems, an Optima digital mobile X-ray system and five ultrasound scanners. 

The University is also proud to be part of the North West Imaging Academy as an Ultrasound Academy and is working with clinical providers to look to support a clinical ultrasound imaging facility which will be able to take referrals and treat patients, helping to support the NHS. The aim is to expand to plain imaging, CT and mammography referrals in the future. 

The facility includes a dementia-friendly imaging room with a ceiling light, designed to look like a skylight, and natural woodland scenes printed onto the walls. The space is designed to help those who enter it feel calm and relaxed during scans and has been designed to support research projects in this field. 

The mammography suite, including the SenoPristina FFDM system with biopsy, was the result of a generous alumni grant from Garfield Weston. This equipment will be used to enhance teaching and learning, enterprise activities and to support the further development of research.
