Cardiovascular Imaging Group

Cardiovascular imaging is one of the mainstays of modern cardiovascular diagnostics. Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allow for the detection of a broad spectrum of diseases of the coronary vessels and the myocardium itself.

Our group investigates the use of alternative contrast agents like Gadolinium for detection of cardiovascular pathologies such as coronary vessel disease in combination with spectral-CT technique.

The group works on advanced MRI sequence techniques including sofficsticated artificial intelligence algorithms. Moreover, new imaging approaches for characterization of coronary arteries are investigated.


Example of spectral CT helping to detect myokardial infarction; further a non-hemorrhagic pericardial effusion is captured.


Spektral data fused with conventional CT-techniques helping to detekt endoleaks with alternativ contrast agents.
