Centre for Implant Technology and Retrieval Analysis

The Centre for Implant Technology and Retrieval Analysis (CITRA) provides patient specific solutions in cases of complex trauma or skeletal deficiency that cannot be addressed using the available commercial device options.

Implant devices, procedural and instrumentation solutions require a clinical referral and are based on imaging data and computer assisted design, solid modelling, rapid prototyping and the support of Advanced Manufacturing. Service support is underpinned by research and development activity in the areas of biomaterials and tissue engineering conducted in alliance with Cell and Tissue Therapies WA, co-located at Royal Perth Hospital.

CITRA employs tertiary qualified Mechanical Engineers, Material Engineers, Scientists and Technical Officers. Specialist training specific to the biomedical sciences is important.
