The Imaging Project at the University Hospital Frankfurt (Rhein-Main) is represented by a DZHK-Professor for Cardiovascular Imaging and equipped with a state-of-the art 3T MR scanner dedicated for cardiovascular research since May 2016. In October 2016 a state-of-the art CT scanner dedicated for cardiovascular research will be installed. The projects focus on the main areas of cardiovascular disease, such as ischaemia, inflammation, fibrosis and heart failure as well as the prediction and substrate for arrhythmia. Novel diagnostic strategies (such as real time imaging, fully quantitative perfusion imaging and tissue characterisation) are developed, validated for accuracy, reproducibility, transferability, outcome and reversibility the effects of therapeutic interventions are assessed.
