Scope and function:

  • Monash Biomedical Imaging (MBI) is a world-class biomedical imaging research facility that undertakes interdisciplinary and multi-modal imaging research in X-Ray computed tomography (CT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Single Photon Emission CT (SPECT), FLuorescence Emission Computed Tomography (FLECT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Our instruments include clincial and pre-clinical 3T MRI (Siemens Skyra), and pre-clinical instruments including a 9.4T MRI (Agilent), and PET-SPECT-CT (Siemens Inveon). We also manage access to a pre-clinical PET-CT scanner (Mediso) at the Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct (AMREP, Prahran) and a FLECT-CT scanner (TriFoil) at the Monash Institute for Pharamacological Sciences (MIPS, Parkville).

 

  • The expertise and technological capabilities at MBI support a wide range of pre-clinical and clinical research projects undertaken by researchers and clinicians at Monash University and at our collaborating organisations. These facilities are co-located with the national synchrotron biomedical imaging beam line, providing capability for ultra-high resolution imaging of soft tissues in living animals. MBI scientists collaborate with global experts in medicine, science and engineering, as well as industry and government to create innovative solutions to clinical health challenges.
