    Dr Elizabeth Warburton

    University Position


    Research interests are as follows 1. Molecular imaging of atheroma - particularly carotid plaque imaging using PET/CT and MRI techniques. Both Clinical and microPET imaging. Proof of principle trials of novel atheroma drugs with imaging biomarkers. 2. Imaging mechanisms of damage in both ischemic and heamorrhagic stroke using PET, CTperfusion and MRI imaging 3. Imaging mechanisms of recovery from aphasic stroke and behavioural interventions
