The medical magnetic resonance (MR) research and education work in Lund is performed by several closely connected research groups, networks and centres within Lund University and Skåne University Hospital, Lund (see Members/Organisation). In this homepage one of these groups, the MR physics group, is described. The main priority of the MR physics group at Lund University is to develop novel MRI methodologies and to apply these to problems in basic science and the clinic, with the goal of furthering human knowledge and improving the clinical care of patients. Specifically, we investigate MR methods for measurement of microcirculation (perfusion and cortical activation), for macrocirculation (flow) and in the study of tissue microstructure using diffusion MRI. Emerging areas in the group encompass high field studies using CEST as well as quantitative MRI in the brain and in the musculoskeletal system.
The MR physics group also takes active part in international MR education and is co-responsible for a widespread national MR education program (MR-skolan i Lund). Furthermore, several group members are or have been active in ISMRM and ESMRMB committees and boards.
