Cardiac Imaging Research South Australia (CIRSA) is a not-for-profit cardiac imaging research organisation based in Adelaide, South Australia. Formed in late 2008 by Professor Joseph Selvanayagam, our Cardiac Imaging Core Lab is an academic research organisation (ARO) providing cardiac imaging services in multicentre national and international clinical trials sponsored by the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries.
Cardiac imaging involves the use of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), echocardiography (also known as cardiac ultrasound) and cardiac computed tomography (CT) to manage and treat heart diseases. We operate an MRI core lab that provides full academic research services in CMR. We support investigator-initiated clinical research and also work with academic research organisations and contract research organisations to develop, implement, and successfully conduct CMR clinical trials.
Our organisation's objective is to research the use of these imaging modalities to improve the cardiovascular outcomes of people suffering from heart diseases. We are located at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) and Flinders Medical Centre, Adelaide.
We are an academic research organization (ARO) providing Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) core lab services in multicentre national and international clinical trials sponsored by the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries.
We conduct investigator initiated, grant funded clinical research and imaging clinical trials.
We are an internationally recognised CMR training facility in Australia. We provide education and training in Cardiac MRI to cardiologists and radiologists in Australia, North Asia and South East Asia. We are an accredited training site by the Society of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) for Level I, II and III CMR teaching courses and workshops.
