  • Two PhD studentships, University of Leeds School of Medicine

    PhD studentship - Quantification of joint function using kinematic magnetic resonance imaging.

    Project Description

    The NIHR Leeds Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit (LMBRU) is a collaboration between the University of Leeds Institute of Rheumatic & Musculoskeletal Medicine, the Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering and the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
    The LMBRU is a leading centre for research in musculoskeletal imaging and biomechanics and provides infrastructure support for a large multidisciplinary team of clinicians, engineers and researchers and facilitates activity around a number of enabling technologies.
    Central to this activity is capacity around a research-dedicated high field MRI scanner, including medical physics, radiography and radiology support.
    As part of the programme of work the team has developed novel sequences for acquiring moving (kinematic) MRI images which capture musculoskeletal function in real time.
    The ability to determine internal function in real time without the need for exposure to ionising radiation offers exciting opportunities for application in research and clinical practice.
    The PhD scholarship being offered is for a project to automate, refine and validate the quantification of data obtained from kinematic imaging and to develop potential clinical applications.
    The fellowship would suit applicants with a mechanical or software engineering background who would like to work at the translational boundary with clinical imaging , or clinical scientists wanting to develop the translational aspect of their careers.
