Access MRI scanning for research purposes


10 May 2012

A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) facility has been established at the Brain and Mind Research Institute (BMRI) to service the University and wider research communities. It offers you a comprehensive solution to running neuroimaging experiments with the support of leading experts.

The BMRI, together with Diagnostic MRI Services, are providing one of Australia's premier imaging facilities. The facility offers:

  • leading service, assisting you with the design, development and running of your imaging experiments, as well as understanding your results
  • a state-of-the-art MRI scanner retrofitted with sophisticated video presentation, response acquisition as well as physiological monitoring systems
  • high-performance computing for data analysis.

The imaging facility offers every imaging modality (including structural and functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging and proton spectroscopy). The facility is also fully equipped to run multinuclear spectroscopy (including phosphorous spectroscopy), and is finalising the development of carbon and fluorine spectroscopy.

For more information, please contact the facility manager Associate Professor Jim Lagopoulos on 9351 0783, or visit the BMRI website.
