Mission Statement

Medical imaging deals with the non-invasive presentation of sectional images of the human body and plays an important role in the diagnosis, treatment and post-treatment of diseases. Effective, safe and high-quality imaging methods are essential for many medical decisions and can reduce unnecessary intervention.

The Institute of Biomedical Imaging (IBI) was founded in 2014 by Tobias Knopp and, in addition to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), focuses on the young imaging technique of magnetic particle imaging (MPI). In detail we do research on hardware development of MPI systems, the research of new signal processing, image reconstruction and image processing algorithms and the evaluation of medical applicability.
