The Royal North Shore Hospital and the Univeristy of Sydney were pleased to launch the Advanced Research & Clinical High-field Imaging scanner - otherwise known as ARCHI. ARCHI is the centre piece of the CADE Clinic's neuroscience research.

ARCHI is a 3-Tesler magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner solely dedicated to research purposes. ARCHI allows researchers to study structural and functional images of the brain, as well as allowing analysis of its  chemical makeup. In addition to the CADE Clinics research into mood disorders,  ARCHI is used by other research groups across a variety of clinical fields including chronic fatigue syndrome, brain injury, pain management, and post-traumantic stress syndrome.
