Gregor Adriany, Ph.D.

1-255 CMRR


Dr. Gregor Adriany is an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology. The main focus of his work is the design and implementation of novel ultra high field (UHF) antennas and related front-end components. After receiving an MSEE from the RWTH University of Aachen, Germany and work for Siemens Medical in Erlangen he joined our lab in 1994 to pursue a Ph.D in Electrical Engineering. He graduated with a Doctorate in Engineering (Dr. Ing.) from the RWTH Aachen in 1998 and continued his research at the CMRR. Dr. Adriany has extensive experience with many pioneering efforts using the world’s first 7 T, 9.4 T, 10.5 T and 16.4 T magnets and leads the CMRR engineering group.

Research Interests:


  • Transmit Antenna Arrays and Innovative UHF MR Technology
  • High Density Transmit - Receive array coil combinations for UHF
  • Multinuclear arrays and Specialty coils for the small bore systems.
