The Science Show radio interview with Robyn Williams
Andreas speaks with Robyn Williams on his Radio National The Science Show segment, discussing details of our X-ray lung imaging system — how it works, how innovative it is, how we hope it will positively impact the health sector, advantages over existing devices, and challenges we face in sucessfully commercialising our technology.
Listen to Andreas's interview, New imaging technology captures movement in the lung.
Steve awarded 2nd PhD thesis honour
Congratulations Steve for being the honoured recipient of the yearly Bill Melbourne Award for Best PhD Thesis in the Monash University Department of Mechanical Engineering (2013).
LDI welcomes postgraduate student
LDI warmly welcomes Melissa Fitzgerald Preissner, who commences her Masters by research studies with LDI. Working with our extensive local, interstate and international collaborator network, Melissa will be utilising LDI's Dynamic X-ray Imaging Facility to perform functional analysis of lung diseases such as Acute Respiratory Disease Syndrome (ARDS).
SPring-8 synchrotron trip #1 for 2014
heads to the Japanese synchrotron once again, with Professor Stuart Hooper and his research team from MiMR to perform lung disease experiments at SPring-8
's Biomedical Imaging Center beamline.
LDI attends American Thoracic Society 2014
proudly return home from a whirlwind trip to San Diego to present LDI's most recent research discoveries at the prestiguous 2014 American Thoracic Society Conference (16–21 May 2014). Posters on the topics of (1) A low dose, high spatio-temporal resolution system for real-time four-dimensional lung function imaging
, (2) Local lung function and airway size response during methacholine challenge and salbutamol treatment measured using high-resolution dynamic CT and functional lung imaging
, (3) Regional image based pulmonary function testing detects CF lung disease earlier than conventional PFT
and (4) Heart-Lung Interactions: A Vital Source Of Gas Mixing Within The Lungs
, were presented in the sessions; (1) Imaging and the Lung: A Rapidly Evolving Field, (2) Lung Imaging: State of Play on Structure and Function, (3) Update in Adult Cystic Fibrosis, and (4) Gas Exchange in Steady State, Altitudem and Exercise. The research generated a lot of positive interest and discussion from international participants and attendees.
Semester One begins
Andreas heads to London
Andreas heads to London to tee up research collaboration opportunities for LDI, visiting the House of Lords, Academy of Science, University College London, Cambridge, Cancer Research UK, and various hospitals.
LDI welcomes 2014
Monash University reopens after the Christmas and New Year close down period. LDI welcomes the new year and wishes everyone research success in the year to come.
