Translating Diagnostic Imaging Innovation Program

Working with industry to broaden medical applications of emerging technologies such as magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy

Led by former TRI CEO and Director of Research, Professor Carolyn Mountford, a world-leading expert in magnetic resonance technology, this Program involves working with Siemens Healthineers to broaden the medical application of emerging technologies such as magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy.

The Program utilises the advanced suite of clinical and diagnostic imaging facilities based at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, including 3T Magnetic Resonance Imaging Positron Emission Tomography (MRI-PET) and Prisma scanners, which allow for precision whole body anatomical and metabolic imaging and image-guided biopsy and radiotherapy. 

These projects and facilities are part of the TRI Innovation and Translation Centre in collaboration with Siemens Healthineers, established in 2016 with funding from Advance Queensland.
This program has now expanded into more than 10 projects where diagnositic imaging capability has been intercalated into ongoing research in Brisbane. 
Current research projects include:
