CAI celebrates 15 years of resonating moments!

1 Oct 2015

The Centre for Advanced Imaging celebrated the 15th anniversary of its Master in Magnetic Resonance Technology program at the UQ Art Museum on the 30th September. The evening featured entertaining and inspiring speeches by Profs David Reutens, Doune MacDonald and Graham Galloway and the Centre's Head of Education, Gail Durbridge.

The MRT program focuses on the physics and technology surrounding magnetic resonance and how this is applied in clinical and research settings, including diagnostics, functional physiology and cognitive neuroscience studies. The course was instigated by Prof Graham Galloway who has noted that "its success has been due to great teamwork from inspiring scientists delivering technology and clinical applications to committed students, wanting to deliver better images for their patients and more informed decisions for their practices".

Since its inception, the course has gone from strength to strength, with numbers that exceeded 100 for the first time in 2013. Enrolments continue to grow with more than 130 students enrolled in Semester 2, 2015.

Our graduates have gone onto senior positions based on the calibre of our program. To learn more about how you can create change with a postgraduate degree magnetic resonance technology and give you the competitive edge visit our website ( or email our education officer at
