Medical Imaging (MRI, CT, X-Ray) and Image Analysis

Group Leader: Prof. Dr. Ing. Frank G. Zöllner

Research Profile

The group performs research on new methods  of image formation in MRI, Computer Tomography (CT) and X-Ray imaging, especially  in physiological  / functional imaging of the human body as well in preclinical projects. Furthermore, we research on methods to automatically analyse the acquired data by means of medical image processing and pattern recognition using machine learning techniques to quantify the measured physiological parameters.

The group is involved in several projects:
