Biomedical Physics

Prof. Franz Pfeiffer

Research Field

Our interdisciplinary research portfolio is focused on the translation of modern x-ray physics concepts to biomedical sciences and clinical applications. We are particularly interested in advancing conceptually new approaches for biomedical x-ray imaging and therapy, and work on new kinds of x-ray sources, contrast modalities, and images processing algorithms. Our activities range from fundamental research using state-of-the-art, large-scale x-ray synchrotron and laser facilities to applied research and technology transfer projects aiming at the creation of improved biomedical device technology for clinical use. From a medical perspective, our work currently targets early cancer and osteoporosis diagnostics.
