Diffusion MRI for modelling the normal neurodevelopment of the infant brain             Together with our collaborators at UQ Centre for Advanced Imaging, we are investigating the relationship between early MRI and clinical assessments, and clinical outcomes. Infants recruited in this study are born at less than 31 completed weeks of gestation. […]

Developing imaging technology that identifies patient function and can guide intervention strategies                   This activity, in collaboration between CSIRO, the Queensland Cerebral Palsy Rehabilitation and Research Centre and the Stella Maris Institute, is investigating imaging technologies for the early detection of brain injury associated with CP, the […]

CONSULT is a 3D experience that allows neurosurgeons to see the invisible, making brain surgery safer and more effective than ever before       Brain Surgery Remains A High-Risk Procedure Brain surgery is dangerous. The brain contains about a trillion axons – microscopic ‘wires’ that carry information. Surgeons need to cut through a subset […]

Designed and developed to support internal research efforts, provide a viable and robust environment for clinical applications.           Introduction The MILXView platform was developed by the Biomedical Imaging team at the Australian e-Health Research Centre (AEHRC) and we acknowledge all staff, past and present, that have contributed to its development. The […]

Objective We are developing an innovative bronchoscopy simulator in collaboration with the RBWH thoracic department. The aim is to increase the skill level of trainee doctors and surgeons who undertake thoracic procedures with a bronchoscope. New imaging techniques Recent developments in novel imaging techniques applied in bronchoscopy are being pioneered by surgeons in the Royal […]

The challenge: Alzheimer’s disease is a major national issue The increasing health costs and lost productivity from neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), exacerbated by the ageing population, is a major National problem estimated to be $5.6b in 2002, including $3.2b in direct health costs (Access Economics 2005). The population >65 is expected to […]

The Australian health system is currently transitioning to a fully electronic system. The Australian health system is currently grappling with the transition to a fully electronic system which will enable health data to be accessed as and when required. Achieving this will rely on the semantic integration of data from multiple sources. Australia has adopted SNOMED […]
