Scanning in the time of COVID-19

Studies that halted due to the pandemic can now be restarted once PIs complete the following three steps:

  1. Getting ethics approval to scan at BUCNI

  2. Getting BUCNI director approval to restart scanning

  3. Getting access to Bedford Way

Please note that these instructions apply to existing studies that were begun before the lockdown and need to be re-started. If you are looking to create a new project, then please follow these directions instead.

Once all three steps have been completed, please refer to the instructions for conducting MRI scanning at BUCNI. These pages will be regularly updated to take into account the latest information about working safely in the current pandemic.

Using these pages
