If you have a new project that needs discussion, or you haven’t yet used the system, we suggest first contacting either the l [dot] hilton [at] neura [dot] edu [dot] au (Senior Radiographer) or c [dot] rae [at] neura [dot] edu [dot] au (Professor Caroline Rae) in the first instance.Apply for clearance for your project from the NeuRA Imaging Scientific Management Panel by downloading the form below and submitting this to a [dot] riley [at] neura [dot] edu [dot] au (Andrea Riley) for SMP review. This process will generally only take one to two weeks as projects are reviewed as soon as practicable after receipt.
Scanning cannot proceed without appropriate research ethics clearances. See our ethics page for information.
Once you have SMP clearance and have agreed to our terms & conditions you may book scanning time by calling MRI reception on 93991200. If your scanning involves using the scanner under the National Imaging Facility, you may also apply to the NIF for subsidized access.
All users of the facility are required to attend the MRI Safety Induction Course before using the MRI scanner. Users must attend the course to enter the MRI control room.
In addition to the MRI Scanner, NeuRA Imaging now offers a programming service for researchers who have SMP approval. For a fee, fMRI projects needing stimulation Presentation programs can be structured and programmed subject to availability of the programmer. See Request for MRI programming form for more information.
