Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre

The Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre (WBIC) is a research facility attached to the Addenbrooke's Hospital Neuro Critical Care Unit and dedicated to imaging function in the injured human brain using Positron Emission Tomography and Magnetic Resonance. Our name reflects the generous funding from the Wolfson Foundation that enabled the University of Cambridge via the School of Clinical Medicine to build and equip the Centre.

The WBIC is currently undergoing significant renovation, and will soon have a new 7T, PET/MR and upgraded 3T scanners installed.
