A primary aim of our team is the further development of MRI methods and applications. Already in the mid-eighties we invented a new principle for the acquisition of rapid images (FLASH) that revolutionized the scientific potential and clinical impact of MRI. Currently, we work on non-Cartesian strategies for encoding the spatial information as well as on novel mathematical approaches for image reconstruction. Such techniques represent major advances for a variety of applications including parallel MRI, which relies on the simultaneous data acquisition with multiple receive coils, and real-time MRI.
For recent applications see Real-Time MRI in the applications section.
