Image-Guided Diagnosis and Therapy (IGDT)
The PhD programme on Image Guided Diagnosis and Therapy (IGDT), established in 2006, is strongly embedded in a clinical environment and focusses on translational and interdisciplinary research. Digital imaging has a huge and increasing impact on clinical medicine and patient management. It is routinely used for diagnosis, biopsy-guidance, as well as in the planning and monitoring of therapies. Our research driven programme includes topics in multimodal imaging, Imaging probe development, fusion and segmentation, as well as navigation and guidance approaches.
The Medical University Innsbruck provides an excellent infrastructure including digital image operation, 3D navigation and robotics, imaging core facilities and preclinical laboratories. PhD-graduates will acquire a comprehensive understanding of the medical, mathematical, physical, pharmaceutical, and technical basis of diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapy. IGDT focusses on a strong cooperation between basic and clinical sciences, based on interdisciplinary teamwork, with a long-standing record of successful translational research projects.
The PhD-Program in Image Guided Diagnosis and Therapy is associated with the excellence doctoral programme funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF):
„Imaged Guided Diagnostics and Therapy – Academic Research Triangle” (IGDT- ART)
IGDT-ART is a joined program set up by the Medical University of Innsbruck, the University of Innsbruck and UMIT. It was established in October 2021 with the support of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) within the doc.funds Programme.
