Curriculum Vitae

Tobias Knopp received his Diplom degree in computer science in 2007 and his PhD in 2010, both from the University of Lübeck with highest distinction. For his PHD on the tomographic imaging method Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) he was awarded with the Klee award from the DGBMT (VDE) in 2011. From 2010 until 2011 he led the MAPIT project at the University of Lübeck and published the first scientific book on MPI. In 2011 he joined Bruker Biospin to work on the first commercially available MPI system. From 2012 until 2014 he worked at Thorlabs in the field of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) as a software developer. In 2014 he has been appointed as Professor for experimental Biomedical Imaging at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf and the Hamburg University of Technology.

Abstract: For medical research, a large number of animals are needed every year. The purpose of this work was to design a 3D CAD rat model which can be used to improve experiment planning and thus reduce the animals required. It was determined using an anatomy atlas and printed with stereolithography. The result is a model that contains the most important vessels and organs as hollow cavities. In a first MPI measurement, all organs filled with tracer of varying concentration were successfully imaged.
