Scientific Scope

Our primary aims are:

  • Development and in-vivo testing of new radioactive labeled pharmaceuticals for diagnosis and/or treatment of cancer on a preclinical and clinical scal
  • Development of new or improved quantitative multimodal imaging approaches including SPECT, PET, CT and MRI for tumor characterization, biokinetic modeling, radiomics and texture analysis including deep learning approaches
  • Use of multifunctional imaging procedures as an additional tool for all groups working on in-vivo studies in cancer research in men, mice, CAM, and organoids

So our research within BSIO comprises oncology, (radio)chemistry, and quantitative imaging/physics/radiomics/kinetic modeling.
