Our Mission



Nowadays the hybrid imaging technologies that combine the modern equipment of radiology and nuclear medicine play an important role in both translational research and clinical diagnostics. Among the routine diagnostic imaging procedures positron emission tomography and single photon emission computed tomography combined with computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging currently belong to the most advanced techniques allowing that functional and morphological images can be superimposed on each other in the same position. Furthermore, with the help of these imaging modalities the biochemical and pathobiochemical processes can be monitored that are essential for understanding and treating diseases, or getting acquainted with the behavior of a new drug candidate. With the help of the clinical and preclinical non-invasive in vivo molecular imaging systems the drug development process can be shortened and its costs can be reduced. At our imaging centre we have the mission to provide professional imaging solutions for translational research questions and to help the progress from great ideas to real applications.
