Project description
MRI is a well-matured discipline in medical diagnostics, but it still suffers from low sensitivity and specificity towards microscopic structural changes in tissue. This project will remedy this shortcoming by establishing novel MRI contrasts, which fundamentally describe either the dynamics or structure of the tissue for the creation of an MR image in the MRI scanner. The novel methodologies will significantly advance the diagnosis and treatment of eg. common musculoskeletal and brain diseases.
