Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is versatile imaging method owing an excellent soft tissue contrast without ionizing radiation. These features have made MRI an important diagnostic and research tool in both clinics and in preclinical setups. The main focus of the group is to develop MRI contrasts and methods for diagnosis, characterization and therapy follow up. The main focus in therapy response imaging is currently in detection of therapeutic effects of vascular endothelial growth factors in different models. The aim is to find methods characterize tissue non-invasively.
