Forschungsschwerpunkt Translationale Neurowissenschaften Mainz


Research group „Neuroradiology”

Our group is responsible for the coordination and maintenance of the MR-systems such as information about risk factors, safety instructions, training of personnel and advice regarding image optimization, detection of artifacts and technical problems as well as radiological assessment of anatomical images of patients and control subjects.

Our research foci are MR- spectroscopy, diffusions tensor imaging (DTI) and functional magnetic resonance imaging

  • for preoperative planning and evaluation of glial tumor treatment
  • to characterize the subtype of benign space-consuming lesions such as  meningiomas
  • to analyze neural networks of the limbic system,
  • development of cerebellum templates,
  • methodical development of analysis models such as noise reduction by employing filters in dynamic perfusion studies
  • optimization of high resolution imaging of temporal arteries in EC-/ IC- bypass surgery and in biopsy planning in case of suspected arteriitis temporalis,
  • detection of traumatic lesions using DTI and susceptibility weighted imaging which cannot be depicted using standard imaging methods
