Super-resolution vascular imaging
In this field, we focus on ultrasound imaging techniques that utilize contrast agents for super-resolution imaging of the vascularization of e.g. tumors.
This reserch topic includes ultrasound imaging techniques, which take the propagation, reflection and diffraction of sound waves in biological materials into account in order to determine quantitative material parameters.
Photoacoustic imaging is a new imaging modality that combines the advantages of optical imaging with the advantages of established ultrasonic imaging techniques. Photoacoustic imaging links the high optical contrast with the good ultrasonic resolution in scattering media.
Magnetomotive Ultrasound Imaging
Magnetomotive ultrasound imaging is a tracer-based technique that enables the imaging of iron oxide nanoparticles in tissue by using a magnetic excitation and ultrasound methods for detection.
MPI-compatible Ultrasound Transducers
This area of research is concerned with the development of diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasound transducers that can be used in combination with a Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) scanner.
