Longitudinal Assessment of Multiple Organs in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes
We are conducting a research project called Multi Organ Assessment in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes, known as MODIFY. The aim of the MODIFY study is to better understand diabetes and find out how to accurately diagnose related diseases.
MODIFY uses imaging to assess the health of multiple organs in the body - including the liver, kidneys, pancreas and spleen - in people with type 2 diabetes who have been prescribed glucose lowering therapy. These images are analysed using a new technique that we hope will provide information to better understand type 2 diabetes and support the diagnosis of any related diseases or complications.
Open to Recruitment.
