KCL_Centre
KCL Centre For Neuroimaging Sciences (CNS) is a Clinical Imaging Centre located at Institute of Psychiatry, KCL Denmark Hill Campus. CNS is a joint venture of the King’s College London Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) and the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust (SLaM). The Centre promotes an interdisciplinary research environment with a world-leading combination of application-oriented brain imaging, analysis and clinical expertise for the definition, diagnosis and treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders. CNS houses dedicated GE MRI scanners (one Signa HDx TwinSpeed 1.5T, one GE Signa HDx TwinSpeed 3T, and one Discovery MR750 3T) and operates an additional Discovery MR750 3T scanner in the newly opened NIHR/Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility. All this equipment is also made available for clinical and advanced clinical scanning. The scanners are all capable of functional, spectroscopic, anatomical and pathological mapping techniques.
