Dr Jennifer Keegan, from the Royal Brompton Hospital, visited the Quest Academy on Friday 9th January to give a talk on magnetic resonance imaging scans to a group of Quest6 BTEC Applied Science and A level physics students.

Dr Keegan talked about how MRI scans work, the benefits of MRI over X-rays and CT scans, their uses in modern medicine as well as showing images taken with different types of scan. Afterwards she worked with some students to help them complete an assignment as part of their Applied Science BTEC and discussed issues related to MRI.
