The Metabolic Imaging group aims at developing robust and highly sensitive metabolic imaging methods at ultra-high field for application in clinical studies on cancer, brain disorders, metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disease and muscle (patho)physiology.

The MRS-group develops 1H, 2H, 31P, 13C, 19F and 23Na metabolic imaging methods in the brain and body for use at ultra-high field (7 Tesla) MR systems.

Principal investigators:

  • Jannie Wijnen (scientific manager)
    Robust and fast metabolic imaging methods for pediatric metabolic disorders and brain tumors.
  • Jeanine Prompers (scientific director)
    MR imaging and spectroscopy of metabolism and mitochondrial function in metabolic disorders.
  • Alex Bhogal
    Functional metabolic imaging of cerebral physiology in brain disorders
