Brisbane lies at the heart of imaging innovation and global scientific progress. The city boasts world-leading research and health care hubs across the key health sectors of cancer, mental health and cardiology. Imaging@Brisbane 2018 is hosted by seven major research centres involved across three significant multi-modal medical imaging facilities located in the state's capital.Read the full welcome
The organising committee is made up of leaders from the seven major research centres in Brisbane. This collaboration of expertise will provide a multi-disciplinary conference showcasing cutting edge research and discovery with innovative technology and clinical application that will benchmark Imaging@Brisbane to be a 'must attend' event.Meet the committee
Ten world-leading scientists and clinicians will join an Australian contingent to showcase innovations in medical imaging; the impact on healthcare and how multi-disciplinary collaborations are taking this innovation into the clinic. Presentations will feature imaging technologies and techniques emerging from academic and clinical researchMeet the speakers
This new conference will bring together world leaders in the application of diverse imaging modalities to Discover, Diagnose and Treat. Having a meeting focused on these three themes will provide a unique platform for those who are leading research, translation and application of this fast moving field.Available opportunities
The Australian e-Health Research Centre (AEHRC) is the leading national research facility applying information and communication technology to improve health services and clinical treatment for Australians.
HIRF is an alliance between four of Queensland's most influential research and clinical institutions: The University of Queensland (UQ), the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute; Queensland University of Technology; and the Metro North Hospital and Health Service through the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (RBWH). It is the location for high end PET,MR and PET/MR equipment dedicated principally to research activities. The facility houses a Siemens Biograph mMR PET/MR, Siemens 3T Prisma MR, and a Siemens Flow mCT 128 PET/CT scanner.
QIMR Berghofer is a world leading medical research institute. Research is focused on four areas: Cancer, Infectious Diseases, Mental Health and Chronic Disorders. Working closely with clinicians and other research institutes, they are translating discoveries into prevention strategies, new diagnostics and better treatments that save lives.
The Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) is a multidisciplinary health and biomedical research institute devoted to improving the health of individuals and communities through research innovation. IHBI brings together expert researchers from numerous scientific fields to improve individual and community health through research innovation.
RBWH is Queensland's largest hospital and provides a wide range of clinical services in the heart of Brisbane. Employing more than 6,000 multidisciplinary staff that together provides life-saving treatment to over half a million people each year. RBWH supports and produces world-leading research and education, and is a prominent innovator in the pursuit of ever-improving patient outcomes.
The Translational Research Institute (TRI) is a unique, Australian-first initiative of ‘bench to bedside’ medical research. TRI combines clinical and translational research to advance progress from laboratory discovery to application in the community. It brings together researchers and clinicians from the Mater Research Institute, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Queensland University of Technology, and the University of Queensland . In partnership with TRI, the Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) has recently installed a Siemens Magnetom 3T Prisma in the Department of Medical Imaging, with 50% of time dedicated to research.
TRI is also the location for state of the art preclinical imaging equipment including: Siemens Inveon Multimodal PET-CT scanner, IVIS Spectrum optical imaging station, Faxitron UltraFocus 100 high resolution cabinet X-ray system, Visualsonics Vevo LAZR Ultrasound and Photoacoustic imaging system.
The Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) is a strategic initiative of The University of Queensland and reﬂects the growth in biotechnology and biomedical research requiring spectroscopic and imaging research capabilities. CAI houses some of the most advanced imaging equipment in the Southern Hemisphere including the first ultra-high field 7 Tesla whole body human MRI scanner, a 3 Tesla Prisma MRI scanner and a Biograph Horizon PET-CT scanner; high field (up to 900 MHz) NMR spectrometers and EPR spectrometers; Bruker pre-clinical PET-MR and Inveon PET-CT scanners; a range of powerful small animal MRI scanner (7T, 9.4T and 16.4T); an 18 MeV cyclotron and a comprehensive suite of radiochemistry and synthetic chemistry facilities. CAI researchers work on innovations in spectroscopic and imaging technology, imaging biomarker development and on biomedical applications of imaging.
