The University of Melbourne–led consortium places emphasis on being engaged with the scientific community to enable appropriate usage of biomedical imaging technologies. It aims to promote collaboration between human preclinical, human clinical and large animal researchers with the common goal of improving health outcomes using ONEHEALTH as the research approach.
The consortium is envisioned to provide openly accessible world-class facilities for basic imaging research allowing Australia to remain at the frefront in imaging related science. We offer the use of all our facilities at very competitive rates.
The Veterinary Science Diagnostic Imaging section provides imaging services both for critical case management and for contract or collaborative research imaging in all non human species.
Key instrumentation includes:
Large animal CT scanner
Large animal MRI scanner 1.5 T
Large animal DEXA scanner
