Research Interests

Functional neuro- and cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) imaging. The focus is on basic MR methodology, development of novel MRI techniques and advanced data analysis strategies for the measurement and analysis of normal and pathological physiological processes in the human body. The evaluation of such methods in clinical studies and the implementation and evaluation of novel clinical applications represents an important aspect of past, ongoing and future scientific activities. Recent research projects focus on regional myocardial function and 4D flow MRI.
