Nuclear Medicine Research

The Department of Nuclear Medicine is the leading clinical and research paediatric nuclear medicine centre in Australia.

Our research is focused into three areas. We assess the extent to which nuclear medicine and bone mineral density techniques lead to improvements in patient management. We work on the development of new radiopharmaceuticals and new applications of current radiopharmaceuticals. Lastly, we research the development and/or modification of imaging equipment and techniques for new applications or improvements in current uses.

Research is led by Professor Robert Howman-Giles, who has been the Head of Nuclear Medicine since 1980.
