Biomedical Magnetic Resonance

Department 8.1

Tasks

 

The department engages in method development for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS).

Specific methodological aspects of MRI are covered by currently four research groups: physical basics and safety (8.11); quantitative MRI and MRS applications in neuroscience studies in cooperation with clinical research groups (8.12); data acquisition and image reconstruction algorithms for motion correction and multimodal imaging (8.13); excitation and acquisition techniques specifically designed to harvest the potential of 'ultrahigh' (7T) magnetic fields (8.14).
Central research tool is a whole-body 3-tesla MR scanner. Additionally, the department is engaged in the Berlin Ultrahigh Field Facility which is operating a 7-tesla whole body scanner.
