MRI-based material testing of biodegradable hybrid materials with incorporated magnetic nanoparticles for in vivo applications.


In this research project, an MRI-based method for future in vivo determination of relevant biodegradable material properties (especially its degradation state) is established by means of in vitro measurements. In these measurements, magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) inside the materials will be used as sensors in the magnetic field of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device.
