The research domain Imaging & Diagnostics aims to revolutionize the entire medical trajectory from diagnosis to follow-up. This will enable healthcare professionals to improve their care for patients by using accurate, quantitative and personalized imaging in screening, diagnosis and evaluation. It also improves their abilities to practice precision medicine.
Our research ranges from development, demonstration and assessment to clinical testing of new technologies and methods. Application areas include anatomic and functional imaging of vesicles, cells, tissues, vasculature and organs to diagnose and characterize disease and health. We work in the fields of applied physics, technology development, mathematics, translational research and clinical practice. Our research groups have a focus on ultrasound, optical, photoacoustic, molecular, magnetic and nuclear imaging for precision medicine. Our students are involved in various research groups. The university has bachelor and master programmes in Health Sciences, Biomedical engineering and Technical Medicine.
We have strong ties with industry partners. Some of our researchers also serve as surgeons in clinics and hospitals. This allows us to perform extensive clinical tests at our university and in hospitals and enables us to valorize research through startups and / or spinoff companies. We see this mix of academic engineering, industry partners and healthcare professionals as an essential part of our success.
