Medical University of Vienna (MUW)
The Medical University of Vienna was founded in 2006. With 8,000 students it is today the largest medical training facility in the German-speaking area. The MUW is organized into 27 university departments, 3 clinical institutes, 12 medical-theoretical centres and numerous highly-specialized laboratories. As such, it is also one of the most prominent research institutions in the field of biomedicine in Europe.
Within the MUW, HYBRID is linked to the Quantitative Imaging and Medical Physics (QIMP) group, which is part of the Center of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering (CMPBME) at the MUW. The CMPBME is a multi-disciplinary research centre with close collaborations with the medical and basic science faculties. The main objectives of the CMPBME include the development of applied physics methodology and biomedical engineering for clinical applications. The QIMP group brings together physicists, computer scientists and engineers in an effort to establish and validate clinical and research protocols using quantitative hybrid imaging technologies, such as PET/CT, PET/MRI and SPECT/CT.
