About us

The Image X Institute is a centre for innovation in radiation therapy and cancer imaging technologies.

Our mission is to improve lives by inventing and advancing new ways to image and treat disease. We’re working on new technologies for medical 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.

Image X is a part of the Faculty of Medicine and Health at the University of Sydney. Explore more research within our faculty.

Benjamin Lau awarded Fulbright Fellowship

Congratulations to PhD candidate Benjamin Lau, who has been awarded a Fulbright Scholarship. Ben’s research focuses on the development of the next generation of 4D imaging systems for radiotherapy. Mentored by Dr Tess Reynolds, Benjamin’s research aims to reduce radiation exposure and imaging time whilst improving patient outcomes in lung cancer treatment, the leading cause of cancer death and one of the most challenging areas to treat. As a Fulbright Scholar, Benjamin will join the Advanced Imaging Algorithms and Instrumentation Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University, where he will undoubtedly expand his expertise and continue his groundbreaking work.

Emily Hewson awarded Cancer Institute NSW Fellowship

Congratulations to Emily, who has been awarded the prestigious fellowship for her project Enabling precise radiotherapy to improve outcomes for advanced lung cancer patients.

“Breathing motion causes radiation to miss the tumour and instead damage healthy tissue, decreasing the rate of cancer curing and the patient’s quality of life. This problem is even more critical for patients with advanced cancer as they require multiple tumours to be treated simultaneously.

I have invented a method to solve the problem of accurately treating cancer patients who have multiple tumours with radiotherapy. I will build upon my adaptive radiotherapy technology to address the complex challenge of respiratory motion.”
