Z1: Non-invasive assessment of tissue micro-morphology, vessel function and cell migration in vivo with contrast-enhanced MRI, VCT, sonography and hybrid imaging
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 (╬╝PET/CT and ╬╝SPECT/CT/optical imaging). We now aim to offer all acquired technologies to the consortium.
