Description

The Institute of Diagnostic, Interventional and Pediatric Radiology provides the complete spectrum of clinical Radiology with more than 100.000 morphological and functional exams as well as interventions per year.

The DIPR institute belongs to the Department of Radiology, Nuclear Medicine and Neuroradiology (DRNN). Three permanent staff positions in medical physics and computer vision engineering support the development of new sequences and an image processing platform, which is being established in the imaging laboratory. In close collaboration with anesthesiologists, angiologists, cardiac and vascular surgeons as well as pediatricians multiparametric imaging and advanced image analysis is in the process of being translated into clinical routine to improve diagnosis, treatment planning and navigation during intervention. Our productive collaboration with the ARTORG center in Bern allows us to work with biomedical engineers of various clinical (e.g. lung) fields that help us to test and apply innovative imaging methods and image processing. Since 2014 DIPR is building up a radiology laboratory at the Department for BioMedical Research (DBMR) to perform tumor cell ex vivo experiments as well as studies with focus on contrast media (reaction).

Furthermore, our group develops a close cooperation in preclinical and translational research with the AMSM group (Prof. Chris Boesch) and the Biomedical Neuroimage Analysis group (Prof. Mauricio Reyes and Prof. Roland Wiest). Our institute collaborates with national and international partners from academia, industry and is being supported by public as well as industrial funding.
