Preclinical Imaging Symposium

Imaging Mechanisms of Disease

Who should attend?

Researchers from academia and industry who are looking to gain additional insights in their projects from using non-invasive methodologies would benefit from attending this symposium. The facilities at Monash Biomedical Imaging (MBI) can image structural and functional changes in live organisms, providing visual impact and quantitative data.

Symposium presentations will cover research projects that use:

  • High-field MRI
  • Computer Tomography (CT)
  • PET- Radioactive Molecular Imaging
  • 3D in vivo Fluorescent Tomography (FLECT)
  • Synchrotron microbeam irradiation
  • High frequency ultrasound.

All the methodologies have applications in research on metabolism, cancer, medical devices, neuronal activation, inflammation, stroke, oedema and anatomical phenotyping.

Monash Biomedical Imaging

MBI is part of the larger Monash Research Platforms network and specialises in helping researchers and industry to non-invasively visualise pathology and organ structure. MBI’s efforts support the development and application of imaging research technologies to advance our understanding of human diseases and to improve health outcomes.

MBI manages instruments in three locations across Melbourne: Clayton, Parkville and Prahran, which houses the new Alfred Research Alliance MBI Imaging Facility. MBI’s sites also include animal housing, extensive support infrastructure and associated services including radiochemistry, surgery suites and laboratory space.

The Preclinical Support Team assists researchers at all stages of their studies to ensure the MBI technologies they use provide the best possible data and research outcomes. Support services offered include scanner operation, training and image analysis.
