Project description

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) imaging will be optimized for quantitative non-invasive charcterization and follow-up of tissue microstructure. Fluor-19 NMr will be optimized to visualize the oxygen distribution in tissue non-invasively. A hyperpolarizer for Xenon-129 will be constructed for non-invasive functional lung imaging and in the light of molecular imaging.
