Imaging Techniques in Nuclear Medicine

Molecular Imaging & Therapeutic Research
Department of Nuclear Medicine
Prof. Dr. med. Markus Essler

In my research group Molecular Imaging & Therapy Research I deal with questions of basic and clinical research. Firstly, in the field of data processing and analysis of nuclear medical imaging procedures, and secondly, in the field of tumor cell biology in nuclear medical therapy procedures.

The main goal of both sub-areas is to obtain a more individualized, and thus improved, tumor therapy for each patient. In this context, we not only consider nuclear medicine therapy procedures, but also, for example, radiotherapy planning or combination therapies.
