Magnetic-Resonance-Imaging (MRI)Copyright: © Volkmar Schulz
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imaging technology, which is mainly used in a clinical environment. In contrast to other imaging devices (such as PET, SPECT, CT…), MRI is well-known for its high soft-tissue contrast. MRI does not utilize nuclear radiation and therefore is regarded as a non-invasive imaging modality.
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a medical imaging modality which measures the three-dimensional distribution of a positron emitting substance inside a patient or animal. more

Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) is a new tracer-based imaging technology, where a patient or an animal is injected with superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIO).
