The successful applicant will focus on the technological aspects of MRI and PET/MR image acquisition and reconstruction. The chosen acquisition strategy should enable rapid measurement of enough data to produce images with high isotropic spatial resolution of the thorax to provide anatomic and functional information with good vessel contrast and permit retrospective measurement of blood flow in any arbitrary orientation. Its subsequent combination with simultaneous PET imaging will also be investigated.
