Biomedical Imaging and Sensing Group

Biomedical Imaging and Sensing Group

Biomed imaging

Our research is focused on the development of a variety of medical imaging and sensing technologies in key areas of disease control. We develop hardware and software for cutting-edge quantitative medical imaging technologies such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computerized Tomography (CT) with a focus on quantitative biosensing of physiological and molecular parameters. In addition, we also research techniques for drug delivery using microfluidics and state-of-the-art radiotherapy. Our research group works closely together with the Macquarie University Hospital and other medical research centres in the Sydney area.
