Master of Molecular Imaging Technology

Overview

Become an international leader in molecular imaging and contribute to the advancement of biomedicines.

Taught by molecular imaging experts supported by state-of-the-art facilities, the Master of Molecular Imaging Technology aims at developing international leaders in this exciting field.

The unique 1.5 year program has been designed for graduates with a background in chemistry, biology, physics, computer science, engineering, radiography and nuclear medicine technology who wish to gain an in-depth knowledge of molecular imaging.

You'll cover all key aspects of the subject, including optical imaging, ultrasound photo-acoustic imaging, single photon emission tomography, positron emission tomography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and hybrid imaging technologies. You'll also learn about the latest molecular imaging probes, contrast agents and radio-pharmaceuticals for nuclear medicine, as well as the importance of quality control involved in clinical molecular imaging.

Importantly, you'll have the opportunity to undertake a semester-long molecular imaging research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor. Using previously acquired data in the areas of molecular imaging, you'll learn to organise, analyse and discuss information and draw defensible conclusions.

A two-week residential component at the start of the course adds to your research training, and further readies you for a challenging and rewarding career.
