The Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) is embedded in a large diagnostic imaging department at Hvidovre Hospital with an excellent MR-research infrastructure. This enables our researchers to closely interact with clinicians and radiologists.
Since its foundation in 1985, the interdisciplinary research at DRCMR has focused on developing and refining MR-based technology in order to improve patient care.
Research at DRCMR translates the latest advances in neuroscience and biomedical MR-engineering into new clinically applied MR methods that make it easier to diagnose and treat patients
with brain diseases, for instance patients with multiple sclerosis, dementia, schizophrenia, or depression.
The first Scandinavian ultra-high field (7
tesla) MR scanner for human use was installed at DRCMR in 2014. This is giving
unprecedented possibilities to examine how health and disease affect the
function and structure of the brain. The installation of the 7 tesla MR scanner
further strengthened the leading position of the DRCMR within the field of
