The Acute Multidisciplinary Imaging and Interventional Centre (AMIIC) welcomed colleagues  from the University of Oxford and the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, as well as visitors from the British Heart Foundation, and Siemens Healthcare, at its formal opening on Tuesday 10 January.

The day included talks from Dr Meghana Pandit, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trusts Chief Executive Officer,  Professor Nilesh Samani, British Heart Foundation Medical Director, and Professor Helen McShane, Director of the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.

AMIIC staff showed the visitors AMIIC's newly refurbished facilities, including its brand new state-of-the-art Siemens Naeotom Alpha photon-counting CT scanner.

Matt Gibson, Diagnostic Imaging Business Lead from Siemens GB&I, presented a plaque to celebrate AMIIC as the UK’s first facility to be able to offer photon-counting CT imaging.

Professor Charalambos Antoniades (pictured right, with Professor Samani), British Heart Foundation Chair of Cardiovascular Medicine and Director of the Acute Multidisciplinary Imaging and Interventional Centre, said "We are really excited with the opening of the new AMIIC.

"The centre is built to deliver state of the art multidisciplinary research by providing the research infrastructure linking interventional, non-invasive imaging and artificial intelligence/big data capabilities. It will also focus on education and clinical training, as well as clinical care for the benefit of our patients"

"We are grateful to Oxford University Hospitals NHSFT, the Oxford NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, the British Heart Foundation and all the other funding bodies who are supporting us in this journey."
