ersity of Cardiff. Project partners: University of California, San Diego, the University of Toronto. GE Healthcare, GlaxoSmithKline and Thornhill Research Inc, Grant: 570,000.

Ultrasound in a Needle: Minimally-invasive High Resolution Imaging for Neurosurgery Brain surgery could be transformed by the creation of a needle containing miniaturised ultrasound devices. High resolution images of brain tissue would give neurosurgeons information about lesions and critical structures in the brain during operations, giving better patient outcomes. The research will produce and test the needle for surgery. Led by Professor Sandy Cochran, University of Dundee with the University of Birmingham and Heriot-Watt University. Project partners: Merlin Circuits & Applied Functional Materials Limited. Collaborators: Diagnostic Sonar Ltd & Scottish Health Innovations Ltd. Grant: 726,000.

Medical imaging markers of cancer initiation, progression and therapeutic response in the breast based on tissue microstructure New ultrasound and MR imaging techniques will examine breast tissue at the microscopic level. The aim is to help identify different types of breast cancer and classify them as high risk and low risk, as well as predicting their likely response to therapy. These methods will be used not only to examine the cancer itself but also microscopic changes in the stroma or connective tissue near to cancers. The results should lead to a clinical trial. The project is led by Professor David Hawkes, University College London and Professor Andrew Evans, University of Dundee. Grant 812,000.

Multimodal neuroimaging: novel engineering solutions for clinical applications and assistive technologies New imaging techniques will be developed to assess and improve therapies for brain injured patients and help very disabled patients to interact with the world. The team will create a wearable, comfortable, brain imaging system capable of measuring regional electrical activity and oxygen ut
