New Philips 3T MRI now part of Australia’s National Imaging Facility
The National Imaging Facility (NIF) has welcomed the new MRI scanner at NeuRA Imaging into its suite of imaging facilities that span the breadth of Australia.
The new Philips 3T Ingenia MRI scanner at NeuRA Imaging is now a member of Australia’s National Imaging Facility.
Announced last month at the annual NIF meeting in at University of Queensland in Brisbane, it means that NeuRA Imaging is now a member of a large, open access array of world-leading imaging instrumentation with access to the expertise of neuroscientists, imaging researchers and clinicians, platform engineers, and computational scientists from 10 universities and research institutes, along with ANSTO.
NeuRA Imaging forms a part of the UNSW NIF node which includes NeuRA Imaging Chair and Node Director Prof Lindy Rae, as well as NIF Facility Fellow Dr Michael Green to provide support to researchers wanting to access the facility.
The National Imaging Facility is a $130 million project that provides state-of-the-art imaging capability of animals, plants, and materials for the Australian research community. NIF’s grid of imaging facilities spreads across Australia, aiming to provide a range of leading-edge imaging instrumentation and expertise in the optimal use of imaging technology to the Australian research community.
