Medical imaging is developing at a rapid pace and hybrid medical imaging systems are becoming more common place. With the blend of high resolution MRI and the physiological data of PET, MR-PET is making quite an impression in medical diagnosis. The operation of such systems requires an understanding of both these stand alone technologies.

The Graduate Certificate in MR-PET is designed for professionals who require a more in depth knowledge of the theoretical fundamentals and operational considerations of a hybrid Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanner.   

An exciting feature of this new course is a one week on-campus attendance, where students are able to operate MRI scanners, and practice scanning on human volunteers.

This course is primarily designed for nuclear medicine technologists, diagnostic radiographers and medical imaging researchers, wanting to upskill in this emerging specialisation.
