Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging Unit

The Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging Unit focuses on the development of MRI techniques and on the analysis of MR data for the assessment of tissue anatomy and function in a clinical setting. One main target is the evaluation of the sensitivity and of the specificity of proton MRI, as well as the MR-based assessment of quantitative physical variables that allow intra-subject and inter-subject comparison.

The MR physics group also deal with technical and clinical aspects of 23Na-MR imaging.

We conduct independent research, support radiological and clinical research, and teach medical and technical students, master students, and Ph.D. students. We provide first-line support for diagnostic scanning and continually advise with regards to a safe operation of our MR scanners.
