Magnetic Detection & Imaging

The research focus of the Magnetic Detection and Imaging group is on developing novel methods for imaging neurosciences. MD&I is a multi-disciplinary team and cover a range of subjects from image acquisition and the analysis of Neuroimaging data, via the development of novel tools for general image and signal processing, to the technology development for imaging biomarkers and advanced diagnosis systems for the neural system. In doing so, the researchers use a variety of imaging techniques, such as MRI, FMRI, MEG, EEG, magnetic particles etc and integrate this with other types of data, such as Genetic or questionnaire information. MD&I draws on a tight collaboration between the MIRA Institute at the University of Twente and the Donders Institute at the Radboud University Nijmegen.

The MIRA-MD&I group is distributed over different locations:

  • The Carré building hosting the TNW faculty in Enschede
  • The Donders Institute for Cognitive Neuroimaging in Nijmegen
  • The Anatomy lab of the Radboud Medical Centre in Nijmegen

To enable clinical applications the group interacts with a multiple clinical departments in (academic) hospitals in the Netherlands (e.g. Nijmegen, Enschede, Leiden, Amsterdam, Groningen & Utrecht) and abroad (e.g. Oxford, London, Heidelberg, Essen).
