The highfield group at the UMCU was initiated in Dec 2007 at the same time a high field (7 tesla) MRI system was installed. Studies have revealed and still revealing new information obtained non-invasively from patients, healthy volunteers and preclinical models all aiming to understand human biology at highest precision.

NICI

The UMC Utrecht coordinates the international consortium of the EU-funded NICI project, that aims to lay the foundations of a new area of research: the study of human biology using non-invasive chemistry imaging. The project unites the two research areas of metabolomics and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Through advancing MRI and discovering...

METAscan-concept

The METAscan-concept was initiated by a Dutch consortium and since Feb 2016 partially funded by NWO. The METAscan concept incorporates a quintuple tuned setup integrated in a whole body 7 tesla MRI system that facilitates imaging of the nuclei 1H, 19F, 31P, 23Na and 13C thereby enabling imaging of metabolism in the human body.
