Clinical imaging

Opportunities for clinical research

Our expanding clinical imaging capabilities enable the development of best-in-class diagnostic tools and patient treatment options. 


A GE Discovery MR750 whole body imaging system is available at the Brain and Mind Centre, complete with functional accessories for patient stimulation (visual and audio) and response. Potential applications include neurological and diffusion imaging, cardiac imaging, vascular imaging and musculoskeletal imaging. We also operate a Mock Scanner to help familiarise patients with functional MRI experiments and the scanner environment, particularly children and those with claustrophobia.
