Mission Statement

The Institute for Biomedical Imaging (IBI) was founded in 2014 by Tobias Knopp and is a joint research department of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) and the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). Medical imaging is the non-invasive imaging of sections of the human body and plays an important role in the diagnosis, treatment and post-treatment of diseases. Effective, safe and high quality imaging is essential for many medical decisions and can prevent unnecessary medical procedures. Our research interests lie in the field of tomographic imaging, with a focus on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and the young imaging technique Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI).  In particular, we are working on the hardware development of MPI systems, the research of new signal processing, image reconstruction and image processing algorithms, and the evaluation of medical applicability. In close cooperation with our clinical partners at the UKE, we also conduct translational research with the goal of bringing state-of-the-art acquisition and reconstruction methods into clinical routine.
