diagnostic IMAGING

With the appointment of Professor Carolyn Mountford as TRI CEO in March 2015, TRI embarked on an exciting series of projects related to her main area of expertise, diagnostic imaging.

The Princess Alexandra Hospital has an advance suite of clinical imaging facilities, including 3T MRI-PET and Prisma scanners, allowing for precision whole body anatomical and metabolic imaging and image-guided biopsy and radiotherapy.  The new MR-PET capability has provided oncology with the ability to use tracers in patients providing diagnostic accuracy from high-resolution images.

The TRI Innovation and Translation Centre in collaboration with Siemens held its first Innovation and Translation in Imaging Summit at TRI in March 2016.
