90% of standard radiotherapy systems in the world contain technology developed by us.

Explore the projects in our three research themes below.

 

 

Novel Radiotherapy Systems

The Australian MRI Linac Program

The Australian MRI-linac program is a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) device combined with a Linear Accelerator, which is used to treat cancer using radiotherapy.

Nano-X Radiation Therapy System

Nano-X is a new class of radiotherapy system that will deliver significant cost reductions, by introducing state-of-the-art clinical radiotherapy precision with a machine that has a significantly smaller footprint, much-reduced shielding requirements and lower staff-to-patient ratios.


 

Cancer Imaging Technology

The Patient Connected Imaging Program

The Patient Connected Imaging Program is a suite of projects which use the patient’s respiratory or cardiac signals to improve the images we can achieve across different imaging techniques.

CT Ventilation

A novel software-based solution that can map out the healthy areas of the lung simultaneously while routine pre-treatment scans are carried out.

The SPARE Challenge

The SPARE challenge stands for Sparse-view Reconstruction Challenge for Four-dimensional Cone-beam CT (4D CBCT). The aim is to systematically investigate the efficacy of various algorithms for 4D CBCT reconstruction from a one minute scan.

 


 

 

Cancer Targeting Technology

AV Biofeedback

The Australian MRI-linac program is a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) device combined with a Linear Accelerator, which is used to treat cancer using radiotherapy.

 

Markerless Tracking

In a world first, we’re developing software that tracks lung cancer tumours without any need for implanted markers.

 

Remove the Mask

Reducing anxiety and distress for head and neck cancer patients. We’re developing surface monitoring technology that can detect & guide patient motion, which will allow us to “remove the mask” from head & neck cancer radiotherapy treatment.

Beam Adaptation

Beam Adaptation dynamically shapes the radiation to target the tumour as it moves, to ensure the radiation beam always hits the tumour and spares the surrounding healthy tissue.

 

Kilovoltage Intrafraction Monitoring (KIM)

Real-time cancer targeting on a standard linear accelerator.
