Research interests

Ewald Moser holds a Diploma in Nuclear Physics (TU Graz, AT) and a doctorate in Physics (TU Vienna, AT). His research interests include high- and ultrahigh field MRI, functional MRI and MRS(I), multi-modal imaging and data processing, particularly for large databases. He collaborates with Psychology, Psychiatry and Radiology in academia and clinical research, and in hard- and software development with imaging industry.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

The Division "MR Physics" is spezialized in the development and application of ultra-high field Magentic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy methods (Moser and all coworkers). Functional MRI methods and applications in the human brain, with a focus on Emotion processing and collaborations with Psychology and Psychiatry (Moser and coworkers). Dynamic metabolic and functional mapping using phosphorus and proton techniques in human skeletal muscle, liver and kidney (Meyerspeer and coworkers). Our RF-lab can provide RF-coil development and electromagnetic simulations for ultra-high field imaging and spectroscopy (Laistler and coworkers). Due to an ever increasing amount of data, storage and fast processing of big data sets employing parallel computing is our most recent achievement.
