The cardiac MRI research group at Leeds University is recruiting participants for a study looking at heart imaging in people with diabetes, using MRI.
The research study is investigating how diabetes can affect peoples hearts. We are looking to see whether there are differences in the effect on the heart between people from different ethnic backgrounds.
We are looking for volunteers, aged 18 or over, who have type 2 diabetes and who are either South Asian* or White European.
We will be asking you to attend the Leeds General Infirmary for an MRI scan lasting up to an hour. The appointment will be arranged to suit your schedule and travelling expenses can be reimbursed.
There will be an option to have a second MRI scan but this is entirely voluntary. You will have a unique opportunity to view images of your heart following your scan.
