Experimental Radiology

In the section Experimental Radiology, we are developing novel MR imaging technologies for various applications within radiology. In particular, rapid MR imaging methods are investi­gated which are then combined with dedicated devices to perform inter­ven­tional procedures within the MR environment. High field MRI techniques are developed using dedicated Tx/Rx coils to quantify tissue oxygenation. Alternative MR imaging concepts are explored, for ex­ample, to utilize artificial intelligence in oncologic MRI or to investigate the vocal fold dynamics during singing.

A. Interventional MRI

  1. Active catheter tracking
  2. Safety of active devices
  3. Imaging of passive iron-oxide markers
  4. Device tracking with automatic detection of imaging markers

B. Functional High-field MRI

  1. Cerebral metabolic rate (CMR) O2 measurements with 17O MRI
  2. Renal oxygenation mapping with 17O MRI
  3. Imaging protocols for functional studies in oncology
  4. Dynamic imaging of the vocal fold oscillation

C. Advanced Imaging Concepts

  1. Concurrent Excitation and Acquisition (CEA)
  2. MRI of Ancient Remains
  3. Artificial Intelligence Tools for MRI in Oncology
