  • Supervisor: doc. MUDr. Tomáš Kára, Ph.D.

The IIIOS Project (Integrated Interventional Imaging Operating System), implemented within the so-called Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development, aims to contribute to the development of new technologies and equipment to improve the quality of imaging methods and to ensure a minimally invasive treatment of cardiovascular diseases, cancer and other disorders.

The project creates a partner network enabling the participating Ph.D. students to obtain practical experience in using advanced modern technologies. Young researchers can also attend specialized international courses which are organized for them and which focus on new possibilities in the field of imaging methods, such as ultrasonic and biophotonic imaging using magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography.

St. Anne's University Hospital in Brno is involved in the IIIOS Project as a partner through the International Clinical Research Center, which will participate in the development of new technologies for nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMR) of controlled cardiac intervention.
