To ensure a world-class research imaging capability, NIF produces and delivers to, a national roadmap for imaging research infrastructure. The NIF Imaging Roadmap shows how we will deliver on the priorities outlined in the 2021 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap for imaging. We will support innovation and ensure Australia’s international comparative advantage by prioritising these capabilities over the coming five years.
NIF is enabling infrastructure and expertise that will support Australia at the cutting edge of advanced imaging, now and into the future as we continue to meet the evolving needs of modern research.
Australia is a world-leader in applying and translating MRI technology—it will continue to be an important part of our imaging research infrastructure.
A new generation of ultra-sensitive room-temperature magnetometers promises to bring advanced, portable diagnostic biomagnetic imaging to clinics for neurological, cardiovascular and neonatal health.
Recent breakthrough technology promises to revolutionise the entire field of computed tomographic (CT) imaging, called photon-counting CT imaging.
Next-generation molecular imaging and radiopharmaceuticals are revolutionising how we see biological processes at the molecular level. We can use hybrid and total-body imaging technologies to more effectively diagnose and treat people.
