Uniting Care Medical Imaging has a strong focus and commitment to advancing patient care through clinical research. We have a dedicated research team, who work with our Radiologists and clinic staff on a wide range of research studies and collaborate with clinical and academic sites across Australia.
Broadly speaking, UCMI’s research projects fit under three umbrellas; Interventional radiology, prostate cancer, and cardiac-thoracic radiology. Our key areas of research interest and expertise include:
- Heart disease
- Novel cardiac imaging techniques
- Occupational lung diseases
- Prostate health and cancer
- SIRTS for liver cancer
- Non-surgical approaches to treating varicose vein
The expanse of research projects has widened in recent years; there are currently 18 projects underway, with more planned. These research projects vary from internally-run research studies to externally-run international clinical trials. Uniting Care Medical Imaging is committed to long-term collaboration with researchers outside of UCMI, and this is reflected in our involvement with research led by local medical specialists and cancer centres, as well as universities and government.
