Department Radiology and Nuclear Medicine

Radboud Imaging Research Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine

Our research has a strong focus on early detection and early treatment of common diseases. It covers fundamental research on a molecular level, development of new medical devices and software tools, and translates these results to clinical applications that can be used in daily routine.

Radboud Imaging Research Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine

Our mission is to bridge the gap between research and practice and to help shape the future of healthcare. We use technology to make healthcare more affordable by increasing automation of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, thus freeing manpower for those areas in patient care in which the "human touch" is most needed.

The five fundamental science groups cover:
  1. ultrasound (MUSIC),
  2. biomedical MR (BioMR),
  3. diagnostic image analysis (DIAG),
  4. nuclear medicine (NucMed)
  5. advanced x-ray tomographic imaging (AXTI).
Clinical research is mainly focused on prostate, breast, chest and vascular disease.
