My general research interest is the evaluation of the possibilities and limitations of simultaneous functional PET/MR imaging in the study of neurological systems as well as oncology. Perfusion measurements obtained with PET and MRI will be compared and cross calibrated. In addition to this the metabolic basics of the blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) effect in functional MRI will be evaluated in combination with functional PET data. Moreover also different PET and MR parameters such as hypoxia, metabolite content are compared between PET and MR in different oncological animal models.
