MRI Physics

Research Topics

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging modality with outstanding soft tissue contrast. Besides anatomical imaging, MRI provides the flexibility of encoding functional information such as velocity. The main research topic of the MR Physics Group is the development of novel MRI methods (such as 4D Flow MRI) for assessing hemodynamic parameters in-vivo. The assessment and improvement of the accuracy and the suitability of spatio-temporal undersampling in phase- contrast MRI is a crucial topic, the main goal remains the applicability of the developed techniques in a clinical setting.
