The ACRF Image X Institute is a centre for innovation in radiation therapy and cancer imaging technologies.
We create, share and apply scientific knowledge to improve health by building new technology for cancer imaging and targeted radiation therapy.
We engage with industry, hospitals, international collaborators and universities to forge relationships that help take our projects from lab bench to patient bedside.
Hilary Byrne awarded REDI Industry Fellowship
Congratulations to Hilary Byrne, who has been awarded an industry fellowship with 4DMedical, to help translate CT Ventilation Imaging for industry.
Dr Hilary Byrne, a Program Manager and Research Fellow at the ACRF Image X Institute in the Faculty of Medicine and Health, will undertake a 12-month project with 4DMedical, the technology innovator delivering breakthrough four-dimensional lung imaging capability, transforming diagnosis and surveillance.
Dr Byrne will focus on resolving clear clinical needs spanning conditions such as COPD, lung cancer, cystic fibrosis and long-COVID, and by expediting regulatory approvals and commissioning of prototype scanning platforms enabling better treatments for patients.
The REDI Fellowship program is part of MTPConnect’s REDI initiative funded by the Australian Government’s Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF). It will bring researchers, clinicians and MTP professionals together for up to twelve months to work on priority medical research projects.

Summer Lecture Series 2022
The ACRF Image X Institute is opening its virtual doors this summer to present the Summer Lecture Series. Each week, one of our star researchers will take the audience through a different element of radiation therapy, followed by a Q&A session.
The Summer Lecture Series is suited to anyone looking to learn more or have a refresher on the science that underpins Radiation Therapy and cancer imaging. For those attending as part of their professional development, we can offer a certificate of attendance.
Entry is free, you can register to attend one, a few, or all lectures.
