New scanner ’like 100 MRIs in one’ developed in Aberdeen
Prof David Lurie, who led the team, said: "Because Fast Field Cycling scanners can switch
their magnetic field, it is almost like having 100 different MRI scanners in one.
Patients in Scotland have become the first in the world to be scanned with the Fast Field Cycling magnetic resonance imaging equipment.
"I saw one of the early prototype Magnetic Resonance apparatuses around 1964 or 1965 - which is partly why I was so excited to be a guinea pig in,
and to be lucky enough to be shown round, the new machine."
