Non-invasive imaging of tumor growth, vessel morphology and function has become highly relevant in
angiogenesis research. In this regard, we have offered imaging of vascularization and perfusion in small
animals to the SFB partners. Furthermore, we successfully developed novel contrast-enhanced and
molecular imaging techniques to monitor morphological, functional and molecular characteristics of
vascularization by MRI, VCT, sonography and hybrid imaging techniques (μPET/CT and
μSPECT/CT/optical imaging). We now aim to offer all acquired technologies to the consortium.
