Magnetic resonance tomography (MRI)

MRI is mainly used in routine clinical diagnostics and as a non-invasive tool in brain research. We employ MR imaging to exclude physiological or pathological abnormalities in the human brain. Furthermore, we use so called anatomical images (see figure) of individual volunteers or patients for a region-specific analysis of respective PET data from the same subjects.
