Research interests

Quantitative high-field and ultra-high Field MRI

  • development of new MRI techniques
  • image post-processing and data analysis
  • quantitative analysis of cartilage, tendon, ligament etc.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

  • High-field MRI (3 Tesla Prisma, 3T Prisma Fit)
  • Ultra High-field MRI (7 Tesla)
  • Quantitative analysis of cartilage (T2, T2* mapping, gagCEST, sodiumMRI)
  • Quantitative analysis of tendon (bicomponent T2* mapping, sodiumMRI)
  • Automated segmentation (MSK, neuro)
