Integrated Multimodal Optical and Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Funding Body: Attract – H2020
Principal Investigator: Silvia Capuani
The project is coordinated by CNR Institute for Complex Systems (ISC) with Physics Department of Sapienza University as partner

The Idea is to develop Nuclear Magnetic Resonance imaging (MRI) with resolution down to the micron scale through the integration of diffusion MRI and single particle tracking.

It could have applications in medical diagnostics. In a long-term vision, MRI with subcellular spatial resolution will enter in the clinical routine opening up new possibilities in terms of early diagnostic, new drugs development, therapeutic strategies and patients handling.
