The UK Biobank Imaging Study aims to conduct detailed MRI imaging scans of the vital organs of over 100,000 participants, making it the largest of its kind in the world. Together with the information we have already collected from our participants, these images will help to improve the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of diseases.
Take a look at the videos on this site to find out more about the imaging study. All video transcripts are available in the 'Further documents' section.
The UK Biobank Imaging Study is one of the most ambitious and exciting health research opportunities in recent years. It will provide an unprecedented level of information to help scientists and doctors working on a wide range of illnesses.Get in touch
Abnormalities can show up on scans taken for research during the scanning process. Most of these are no cause for concern. But, if the radiographer does happen to notice a potentially serious abnormality while taking the scans, they will refer the scans after your visit to a specialist doctor (radiologist) for review. If the radiologist agrees that the abnormality is potentially serious we will write to you and your GP to tell you.
