|Department:||Comprehensive Heart Failure Center|
The Comprehensive Heart Failure Center Würzburg (CHFC) is an Integrated Research and Treatment Center. More than 120 scientists conduct interdisciplinary basic, translational, and clinical research and provide innovative patient care in the field of prevention of heart failure and its medical complications. Within the CHFC the Department of Cardiovascular Imaging develops, deploys, and performs research on a variety of biomedical imaging technologies, in particular ultrahighfield MRI of the heart and organs interacting with the heart. Imaging research is complemented by an electronics/coil lab for MRI hardware development and working groups on computational cardiology and innovative MRI contrast including hyperpolarization technology. Besides research, it provides a Core Facility Imaging which is a single entrance point to imaging for scientists outside the field. We operate the first off-the-shelf Siemens Magnetom Terra 7T MRI system, as well as a Bruker Pharmascan 70/16 experimental MRI system. By special organizational measures full translational imaging path, i.e. from mouse over pigs to humans is available. Further in-house experimental imaging modalities are small animal PET and SPECT/CT as well as ultrasound. Other clinical imaging modalities are available through close local collaborations with departments of Würzburg University and University Clinics.
