The Neuroimaging platform facilitates research projects in humans using CT, MRI and PET-CT at state of the art equipment including top-end digital PET scanners, 3T MRI and the national 7T MRI (LBIC). While the equipment is located at and run mainly by the clinical imaging department at Skane University Hospital, the platform consists of core staff for image analysis and a lecturer performing research with focus on neurodegenerative disease, as well as resources for PET ligand synthesis. Research projects are applied for at the appropriate research board and a fee is paid per investigation. Data is pseudonymized, stored at a local server according to prevailing routines and thus available to researchers for analysis.
