Kindly sponsored by the RBRS research grant 2009 for the University of Ghent, I got the opportunity to embark on a research fellowship at the University of Melbourne, VIC, Australia. I was offered the appointment as Medical Imaging Research Fellow in the division of Medical Imaging/ Division of Clinical Support Services. The Melbourne Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) is the an important pillar of the faculty of medicine of this university, and is internationally recognized as being the single largest paediatric health care research centre in the world. The prime purpose of the fellowship was to develop and consolidate expertise in all aspects of research in general and paediatric imaging. There were regular appraisals, which allowed me and the radiologists to inform one another of performance in order to assist in optimising the rest of training.
