On Friday 28 September 2018, we held a one-day festival of imaging to share the breadth of the imaging expertise within the Oxford imaging community. Bringing together many of Oxford’s imaging scientists and clinicians, it showcased the broad range of scientific research being undertaken in Oxford.
