Medical imaging is an area of research that bridges the gap between basic and clinical science. It serves the common goal of developing and evaluating novel techniques for the image-based assessment and image-guided treatment of a wide spectrum of diseases.
It is critical in advancing our understanding of normal variability and disease, the corresponding development of novel imaging markers and diagnostic approaches, and finally their implementation in a clinical setting. Accordingly, different scientific disciplines are involved, including, but not limited to, radiology, nuclear medicine and radiopharmacy, biomedical engineering and medial physics, computer science, machine learning, image processing, radiation oncology, ophthalmology, and psychiatry. This multi-disciplinary approach is reflected by the Medical Imaging Cluster (MIC) of the Medical University of Vienna.
