Guide to accessing the Centre

The key steps involved in the initiation of a study, incorporation of Centre-specific information into applications for funding and ethical approval, and performance of the study are:

  1. Discuss your project plans with Elizabeth Howell, Clinical Scientist and Dr Ross Maxwell, PET Technical Director.
  2. If your study is feasible contact our CIVI Admin staff for a Costings Request form.
  3. Study costs will be finalised and relevant information provided to you for your ethics application. It is our policy that scanner safety information provided by our MR physics team is incorporated into your application.
  4. Submit your grant application and ethics application and notify the CIVI Admin staff of successful funding and ethical approval.
  5. Your study is registered with us once all approvals are in place.
  6. Schedule your study scans and attend safety training associated with radiation and/or MR magnet, if applicable.
