    Neuroradiologist Prof. Dr. Arnd Dörfler involved in developing an ultra high field magnetic resonance scanner together with Siemens Healthineers

    Prof. Dr. Arnd Dörfler, head of the Department of Neuroradiology at Universitätsklinikum Erlangen at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) has been nominated for the Deutscher Zukunftspreis 2019. Dörfler is responsible for clinical research in the team nominated for the award, comprising Dörfler, the Siemens Healthineers employee Dr. Christina Triantafyllou and the MR physicist from Heidelberg Prof. Dr. Mark E. Ladd. The nomination recognises the scientists’ pioneering achievements in the field of research and development. Their success in developing the first ultra high field MRI scanner approved for clinical use is a global breakthrough for precision medicine. It means that more effective options will now be available to help patients with minute pathological changes to the structures in their brain, which have until now been barely visible using conventional imaging techniques. The jury will choose the winners on 27 November and Federal President Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier will present the Deutscher Zukunftspreis in Berlin that evening.
