The Neuroradiology Research Unit carries out basic, translational and clinical research with collaborating departments at Aarhus University Hospital, other Danish hospitals and abroad. The research includes the development and validations of new diagnostic methods, the use of neuroimaging biomarkers of disease progression in clinical trials, and studies of disease mechanisms in brain disorders such as stroke, dementia, brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury and psychiatric diseases.
The Neuroradiology Research Unit is closely integrated with the Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience (CFIN) at Aarhus University and shares a magnetoencephalography (MEG) system and a 3.0 Tesla MRI system with the Section of Neuroradiology and the Section of Neurophysiology, Department of Neurology, respectively.
Head of research
Leif Østergaard is professor and consultant at the Section for Neuroradiology. He heads the Neuroradiology Research Unit and is director of Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience (CFIN). The Neuroradiology Research Unit and CFIN jointly maintains a comprehensive experimental infrastructure at AUH, comprising two 3.0 T human MRI systems, a 9.4 T animal system, magneto- and electro-encephalography (MEG and EEG) facilities, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) equipment, an optical imaging facility, and a molecular/cellular biology laboratory.
