The rapid advances in imaging technology enable to see inside the body with ever increasing detail.
- Marcus van Buchem
Advanced microscopy allows visualization of dynamic processes within a cell and even in the living body, whereas medical imaging focuses on cells and tissues in patients. Consequently, Biomedical Imaging allows to study health and disease on the scales from molecule to man. The LUMC medical research profile Biomedical Imaging aims to develop novel imaging strategies for early diagnosis of diseases, individual tailoring of treatments (Personalized Medicine) and minimally invasive, image-guided interventions.
