TUM is led by Prof Ntziachristos, Director of the Institute for Biological and Medical Imaging (IBMI) of the Helmholtz Center Munich and the Technical University of Munich.  Based at the Medical School and Hospital of the Technical University of Munich, the medical imaging laboratory focuses on the propagation of new preclinical and clinical imaging technologies into healthcare. It has a world leading position in the use of fluorescence imaging methods for intra-operative and endoscopic imaging including miniaturized imaging scopes for intravascular imaging. This includes state-of-art hybrid fluorescence and X-ray tomography systems.
