University departments with PET-MR scanners have had no choice but to store these highly complex imaging data locally at their sites. DPUK's imaging informatics technology now allows local imaging sites to upload their data to a central server so researchers beyond their university can work with it. Critically the data owners still retain complete control over who accesses these data.
This study measures scanning variability at and between each of sites in the DPUK Imaging network so that any differences can be minimised and to allow standardisation of scanning methods. It is led by Karl Herholz at the University of Manchester.
