Australian and New Zealand Medical Radiations Research Network

Welcome to the Australian and New Zealand Medical Radiations Research Network – ANZMRRN.

Our goal is to bring medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals together in all aspects of research. We hope the ANZMRRN will become a central meeting space for radiation researchers whether novice or expert, across Australia and New Zealand.

It is a place to share ideas, to find research resources, to offer help and expertise to colleagues and above all to collaborate. We are committed to continually improving and advancing radiation therapy and medical imaging practices through innovative and exploratory scientific, clinical and professional research that touches all aspects of our practice. Our ultimate desire is to increase high quality medical radiations, MRI and sonography research to add to the scientific literature in order to improve diagnosis and treatment outcomes for our patients.

This web space provides assistance across the spectrum of researchers from novice through to the more experienced. Useful online resources such as research process flow charts and statistical tools will be immediately accessible to all whether in a public or private metropolitan hospital or rural setting.

Facilitating engagement in research

As part of the research network we like to facilitate discussion and engagement between all of our practitioners across Australia and New Zealand as much as possible. Last year, we ran two on-line journal clubs. Watch the video below.

Conversations on Research – Coming soon

This year, we are revising the format of the OLJC to regular 30min Webinars. These will be live and interactive conversations about….. well anything research. It may be a PhD student talking about their latest study findings or an experienced researcher giving hints and tips. You can “drop in” to any session using your PC, laptop or mobile device. Either just listen or join in.

Watch this space for more information on our first Webinar and list of topics planned for the rest of the year.
