WP9: MI - Access to Innovative Technologies

The objectives of WG Access to Innovative Technologies - Medical Imaging (MI) are

  • To survey existing European infrastructure enabling innovative MI technologies.
  • To identify the needs of the scientific community with regard to instrument developments and access to the identified innovative MI technologies including Ultra-High Field MR (UHF-MR), Novel X-ray based Phase-Contrast Imaging (PCI) and Emerging Imaging Technologies (EIT) such as combination of MR and PET, SPECT, or MEG (MR-PET, MR-SPECT, MEGMR), Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Imaging (EPRI), and Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI).
  • To search for additional emerging MI developments, which may be considered for inclusion in the forward planning of Euro-BioImaging infrastructure.
  • To determine the bottlenecks for providing access to innovative MI technologies.
  • To explore the feasibility of providing access to the identified innovative MI technologies by proof-of-concept studies.
  • To develop a comprehensive, long-term plan for the implementation of European access to innovative MI technologies.
