Pre-clinical respiratory scanner

The four-dimensional pre-clinical respiratory scanner – a world first – is celebrated for its ability to diagnose and treat lung conditions at a lower cost and lower radiation levels.

Acute demand sees the University’s researchers join forces with medical tech companies, 4Dx and Hydrix, to rapidly commercialise and manufacture two scanners for major overseas research hospitals by year’s end, and a further three by the end of 2018.

Supported by the Victorian Government, the project is expected to generate 56 new jobs and around AU$6.7 million export revenue over the next two years.

The technology provides an enormous opportunity to impact global health.
