About Us

The University of Melbourne established the first University Department of Radiology in Australia in 1965 with the appointment of William S C Hare as the Foundation Edgar Rouse Professor.

Radiology is situated within The Royal Melbourne Hospital and is adjacent to the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences. Located in Radiology, The Brain Imaging Laboratory was established in 1997 for the purposes of analyzing imaging data acquired at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Housed within the Dept of Radiology Library, it has proven to be of vital use for researchers and students undertaking neurological research.
