In order to gain a personal impression of the successful Dutch-German research collaboration, the Commissioners of the kings of the provinces of Gelderland and Overijssel, Clemens Cornielje and Ank Bijleveld, visit the institute on the Zollverein site in Essen on November, 13th. Franz-Josef Lersch-Mense, the NRW Minister for Federal Affairs, Europe and Media, accompanies them.
The managing director of the institute, Prof. Dr. Harald Quick, explains the research focus of the institute: „Clinic standard are MRI systems whose magnetic field strength does not exceed 3 Tesla. At the ELH we can do research on imaging methods with a magnetic field that is more than twice as strong. Thus, we can examine the human body and its diseases much more accurately. „
The further development of this high-field technology is the focus of the research activities at the ELH. „The overall objective is to be able to use this technology in clinical diagnostics later,“ explains Prof. Dr. Jan Buer, Dean of the Medical Faculty of the UDE. The research is based on the cross-border cooperation of physicists, engineers, medical scientists and psychologists from Germany and the Netherlands. The highlight of the institute tour is a visit of the heart piece of the research center, the 7-Tesla MRI Scanner.
