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.

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.”

Eureka Prize Winner – Congratulations Dr Tess Reynolds!

Dr Tess Reynolds has won the Eureka Prize for Outstanding Early Career Researcher. Tess received the award for her large body of innovative work. By developing technology to better guide robotic imaging during surgery, Dr Tess Reynolds is improving the view for surgeons as well as outcomes for patients. Partnering with the world’s largest medical device company, her pioneering techniques offer clearer, more complete images for complex cardiac and spinal surgery.

Eureka Prizes Finalist – Congratulations Dr Tess Reynolds

The institute is proud to see Tess nominated as a finalist for Outstanding Early Career Researcher for the second time in as many years.

Dr Tess Reynolds’s ACROBEAT technology enables 3D imaging hardware to calculate heart movement and select the best time to acquire clear images. This has the potential to transform 3D image guidance and change the way we treat cancer and cardiovascular disease. The technology can be used to guide radiotherapy to organs impacted by cardiac motion and allows surgeons to scan patients mid-operation, to check that heart valves or pacemakers have been placed accurately.

In addition to this, Tess has developed techniques to extend the intra-operative field-of-view, allowing long anatomical sites such as the spine to be captured in a single 3D image during surgery, providing guidance and ensuring accurate hardware and instrumentation placement during complex procedures.
