Brisbane, Australia
Queensland Node

Queensland Node contains Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) and it is part of the National Imaging Facility (NIF), a national biomedical imaging infrastructure in Australia.

The Centre for Advanced Imaging is an integrated centre for imaging and spectroscopy, encompassing human, animal and materials imaging. The centre performs imaging studies in a wide range of areas, from major diseases affecting a range of organ systems, such as neurodegenerative disorders, cancer and cardiovascular disease, through to imaging economically significant agricultural animals and plant material, minerals and construction materials. The following imaging technologies are available at the centre: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Positron emission tomography–computed tomography (PET-CT) and informatics and image processing in preclinical and human molecular imaging, and in addition, Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and Electronic paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy (EPR) spectroscopy.

Some of the equipment available at the Centre for Advanced Imaging:

  • 7T and 3T Human MRI
  • Human PET/CT
  • Preclinical 16.4T, 9.4T, and 7T MRI
  • Preclinical PET/CT and PET/MR
  • Cyclotron and radiochemistry labs
  • 900, 700 and 500 MHz solution NMR
  • 300 Mz solids NMR
  • Pulsed and imaging EPR
