Research: Improved oncological radiotherapy treatment planning and monitoring by using physiological and functional imaging of CT, MRI and PET. Developing of new MR techniques (23Na imaging, dynamic MRT, diffusion, perfusion, blood bolus tagging, BOLD MRI) for clinical use in therapy planning and monitoring. Imaging of hyperpolarized 3He in the human lung, techniques (T2*- and T1-technique) for non-invasive measuring of tissue oxygenation and perfusion in the myocardium and with general interest in radiology.
