Clinical Research

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
  • Osteoarthritis
  • 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.
