Welcome

Molecular imaging is a newly emerging field in which the modern tools of molecular and cell biology are being married to state-of-art technology for non-invasive imaging. The goals of this field are to develop technologies and assays for imaging molecular and cellular events in living organisms. These approaches should help to lead to better methods for studying biological processes as well as diagnosis and managing diseases.

Clinical-Forensic Imaging

The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Clinical Forensic Imaging (LBI-CFI) was founded in June 2008 and is an institution of the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft GmbH (LBG).
The LBI-CFI dedicates its research efforts to Forensic Radiology. The scientific goal of our interdisciplinary research team is to establish CT and MRI imaging in the forensic context and to further develop the methodology and technology according to the requirements in legal medicine and forensics. Our vision is to improve the results of forensic examinations and extend expert’s reports to a broader basis of objectively collected data, including internal injuries. Furthermore, we want to achieve a higher level of legal security and establish radiological, especially magnetic resonance imaging  methods as standard procedures in forensic examinations.
In cooperation with the Medical University of Graz, the LBI-CFI runs a Clinical-Forensic Outpatient Centre.
A detailed description of the institute, team members, and methods is available on our website: http://www.cfi.lbg.ac.at.

Preclinical Imaging, Medical University of Graz

 

INVEON microCT

The MicroCT (Siemens) is designed to meet your throughput, resolution, and image quality needs. Inveon sets the standard for in-vivo preclinical micro computed tomography. With a range of X-ray source and detector configurations available, the ability to adjust the scanner magnification between scans, and a suite of image reconstruction and data analysis tools, the Inveion delivers the most versatile preclinical CT solution in its class.

Application: Bone structure analysis, Bone density...

 

Visual Sonics' Vevo 770

offers spatial resolution down to 30 microns. The system is non invasive, which allosw longitudinal study and reduces the number of mice required. VisualSonics technology provides scientific professionals with a simple method for efficiently viewing extremely small physiological structures and for imaging living tissue and blood flow with near-microscopic resolution. The Vevo 770 has been developed specifically for mice.

Application: Cardio-vascular research, Cancer research

 

The CRi MaestroTM system

Our Meastro instrument is used for fluorescence based in-vivo molecular imaging. Using multispectral acquisition and analysis, it provides dramatically improved sensitivity, multicolor flexibility and quantitative accuracy for both visible and near-infrared labels. We have two emission filters available for imaging: 515nm (blue) and 750nm (red). 

Application: Tumormonitoring, Distribution studies
