Additional Information

MR-Physics

MRI

The primary aim of the MRI group is the development and implementation of new methods and sequences in Magnetic Resonance Imaging with a focus on the brain.

Technical Aspects of MR-PET

PET

Positron emission tomography (PET) is a unique modality for imaging normal and diseased metabolical functions in vivo in a quantitative manner.

MEG-Physik

MEG

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a non-invasive measurement for the detection of the tiny magnetic field components originated from the information processes in the living human brain.

Brain Tumors

Brain Tumors

The special field of interest of this group is the preclinical and clinical testing of new radiopharmaceuticals for nuclear medicine diagnostics of brain tumors using Positron-Emission-Tomography (PET) and correlation with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

PET-Detector Technology

PET-Detector Technology

Die Arbeitsgruppe befasst sich mit zwei wichtigen Aspekten der Bildgebung mit PET:(1) Entwicklung neuartiger, kompakter und Magnetfeld-kompatibler Detektoren für die PET
(2) Simulation bildgebender Verfahren in der Medizin unter dem Leitmotiv: Das Schicksal der Ereignisse vom primären Detektor zum rekonstruierten Bild unter Berücksichtigung aller physikalischen Effekte und notwendigen Korrekturen.
