The Hardware Group develops components especially for high-field MRI systems.
The primary aim of the MR Group is the development and implementation of new methods and sequences in magnetic resonance imaging, with a focus on the brain. In particular, we are interested in quantitative MR imaging, structural and functional imaging, sodium imaging, diffusion imaging and high-field MR.
To support these activities, the MR Group constructs and implements new hardware designs and sequence development. An important topic of research is the combination of MRI and PET in a hybrid MR-PET scanner capable of simultaneously measuring the two datasets. This combination opens new frontiers for the study and application of innovative methods in basic and translational brain research.
