Research focus

Konstantin Nikolaou is Chairman of the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology in the Department of Radiology at the Eberhard-Karl-University in Tübingen, Germany. K. Nikolaou received his MD from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich (Germany) in the year 2000, where he also became an Assistant Professor at the Department of Clinical Radiology, University Hospitals Munich, after finalizing his PhD-thesis on the topic of modern cardiovascular computed tomography techniques in 2007. After working as a section chief of CT/PET-CT and MRI at the same department, he became Vice Chair of the Department of Clinical Radiology at the Ludwig-Maximilian-University in Munich in April 2007.
K. Nikolaou joined the Eberhard-Karl-University Tübingen in April 2014 as Chairman of the Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology. His main fields of interest are multimodality and multi-parametric imaging modalities in oncology as well as non-invasive imaging of cardiovascular diseases.


Research Areas

Multimodal and hybrid oncological imaging

  - Functional, hybrid and molecular oncologic imaging techniques, including Dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE-)MRI, DCE-CT, Diffusion-Weighted MRI, Dual-Energy CT
  Hybrid Imaging in oncology (PET-CT, PET-MRI)

Cardiovascular Imaging

  - MRI and CT in imaging of the myocardium and coronary arteries
  - Non-invasive vascular MRI and CT imaging (aortic, pulmonary, peripheral vascular imaging)
  - Multimodal imaging of the arterial vessel wall / Plaque Imaging

Cohorts and Imaging Biomarkers

  - Imaging Biomarker development and translational, experimental models in oncologic and cardiovascular imaging
  - Whole-Body MRI techniques and advanced post-processing in cohort studies
