The VBIC nodes with 3 Tesla human MRI facilities have come together to create training guidelines for research only 3T MRI facilities. With input from the safety procedures implemented at each node, as well as publicly available information, the VBIC Node Directors have developed a guideline to train non-radiographers in the use of MR scanners under specific circumstances (the first research completed the training in 2014, here’s what they think). The documents comprising the guideline (below) should be viewed within the context of the MRI Safety Guidelines.

Volunteer for research
Here we provide a list of resources for those wishing to become volunteers as well as those looking to recruit volunteers.
- Monash Biomedical Imaging and the many researchers who use its facilities conduct a wide range of clinical research studies. Participants are often sought for these studies, including ‘healthy controls’ and participants specific to the study. Some projects offer compensation for time given to participate in the research. Visit the Monash Biomedical Imaging Participants Page for studies currently seeking volunteers.
- School of Psychology (Monash University) – Volunteer for Research.
- Brain PET – Research Volunteer Registry.
