Quantitative MRI of the heart
Published on
Reference number
Master Thesis

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a versatile medical imaging technique which is widely used in clinical practice. Standard MRI yields qualitative images where the intensity difference between different tissue types (image contrast) is used for diagnosis, rather than the actual pixel intensity values. The advantage of quantitative MR is, that pixel values represent physical parameters and hence can be directly used to distinguish diseased from healthy tissue.

This project is based on a current PhD-project developing a highly efficient approach to obtain quantitative cardiac MRI. This MSc-project will focus on implementing a signal model for a new MR acquisition scheme and to carry out phantom and in-vivo experiments for evaluation. The project will be carried out in close cooperation with a clinical partner (Charité Berlin).
