Monash Biomedical Imaging (MBI) has continued to grow in terms of scientific output and contributions to imaging technology advancement. Significant changes to the facility have also occurred with the addition of BrainPark.

In this presentation, Professor Gary Egan, Director of MBI, will reflect on the growth in capacity and influence at MBI, and outline the exciting opportunities for expansion of MBI infrastructure. He will provide an overview on:

  • MRI and MR-PET technology improvements achieved in 2018
  • Growth in co-located research groups and facilities at MBI
  • Federal funding for the National Imaging Facility and how this will support the development of a cyclotron near MBI
  • MBI’s involvement with the new Monash Heart Hospital
