Research saves and changes lives

More than 41,000 men and women are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year. Around 300,000 individuals live with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and thousands of others with IBS.

This study is looking to use technology to bring the power of MRI into the management of chronic conditions such as Crohn's disease.
