I have worked in the area of magnetic resonance imaging technology and applications since 1983. In 1987 I demonstrated a new method of imaging free radicals called Proton-Electron Double-Resonance Imaging (PEDRI) which combines electron spin resonance (ESR) with MRI and enables high resolution images of free radical distributions to be generated in living animals. Research groups in Europe, Japan, Brazil and the USA are now using PEDRI in their bio-medical research programmes. During the last decade my research effort has concentrated on Fast Field-Cycling MRI (FFC-MRI). Whereas standard MRI scanners operate at a single magnetic field, FFC-MRI scanners have the ability to switch magnetic field rapidly during a scan, thereby obtaining information on the variation of the NMR relaxation times with magnetic field strength. Results are indicating that this can provide a valuable new contrast mechanism for clinical MRI. In 2015 a consortium of seven research laboratories and two companies, coordinated by me, secured €6.60m (£5.69m) from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 scheme to develop FFC-MRI as a clinical imaging modality.
