We work on state-of-the-art MRI techniques both on clinical (1.5T/3T) and preclinical MRI (11.7 T) scanners

  • to improve the understanding of physiological processes,
  • to develop novel diagnostic MRI techniques,
  • to disclose novel diagnostic MRI biomarkers,
  • to find new targets for therapeutic treatment

in/for cardiovascular diseases.
