Cardiac Imaging Research SA

Our Core Lab in South Australia


The Lab



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.

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.


Based in Adelaide (South Australia), our core lab provides services in CMR protocol development, CMR manual preparation, site selection and engagement for clinical trials, CMR imaging adjudication and analysis and data entry. We are the leading CMR core lab in Australasia.
