Centre for Magnetic Resonance Investigations
The Kingston Upon Hull Centre for Magnetic Resonance Investigations (CMRI), which opened in 1992, is a magnetic resonance imaging centre located in the city of Kingston Upon Hull (Hull) in East Yorkshire, England, UK. It is situated in the grounds of the Hull Royal Infirmary hospital in the centre of the city.
The centre carries out both cancer research studies, under the auspices of the University of Hull, and clinical scanning, under the auspices of the local NHS trust, Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals.
The centre currently has three MRI scanners; two 1.5 tesla scanners owned by the NHS (a Philips Intera and a GE Signa) and a state-of-the art 3.0 tesla GE Signa scanner owned by the University which was installed in 2004 (one of the first 3.0 tesla whole-body capable systems in Europe).
The three MRI scanners at the centre; (from left to right) a 1.5 tesla GE Signa, a 1.5 tesla Philips Intera and a 3.0 tesla GE Signa.

The medical research is carried out under the Directorship of Professor Lindsay W. Turnbull, and is devoted to the application of magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopy techniques to the study of cancer.
Current research projects include investigations of cancer of the breast, prostate and cervix. Previous studies have involved investigations of cancer of the brain.
MRI techniques employed include dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI), diffusion-weighted MRI, functional MRI (fMRI, brain activation mapping), image textural analysis, proton spectoscopy and phosphorous spectoscopy.
The research is wholly funded by the charity Yorkshire Cancer Research.
