Applications in Medicine, Biology and Material Science

Many technological development from fundamental research within KTA have found applications in the every-day life or in other research areas. This is the reason why many different diagnostic methods in medicine, like MRI and PET are by-products of the KTA research.

Positron-Emission-Tomography (PET) The Positron-Emission-Tomography (PET) displays regions with larger metabolic activity (lighter spots). Today photon, ion and neutron beams are regularly used to treat tumors. Modern research in the field of the medical diagnostic based on the very modern detector technology and that utilize ion and neutron beams for application in biophysics and for the study of different materials are further example of these kind of applications.
