Neuroimaging

There are multiple neuroimaging techniques which can be used to generate images of the brain. Through our research partners at Macquarie Medical Imaging we have access to state of the art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) , single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and computed tomography (CT).

MRI is a technique which utilises the magnetic properties of our cells in order to generate images. The scanners use very powerful magnets…. Read more

PET utilises radiopharmaceuticals to take 3 dimensional images of the brain. The metabolism of the radiopharmaceutical produces energy…. Read more

CT is a technique in which multiple images are acquire at different angles and reconstructed to generate images of the brain. These images can be manipulated to form 3 dimensional representations of structures within the brain… Read more
