Welcome to the Neurodiagnostics Laboratory (DIAL), headed by Alexander U. Brandt, at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany. Our research is driven by the question: Why do we measure what we measure? And: can we do better?
Answering these questions is of utmost importance for the clinical trials and the clinical care we accompany. Only the best possible outcome measurements will guarantee valid trial results as well as correct and timely diagnoses.
Our particular research focuses on the employment of imaging methods such as optical coherence tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and sensor based motion capture for better understanding multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune neuoinflammatory disorders.
DIAL was founded to connect clinical scientists and physicians with mathematicians, physicists, engineers and computational scientists. In this multidisciplinary environment we create and apply technology that is tailored to the clinical scientist’s need but incorporates latest technology and methods from mathematical and computational domains.
DIAL is a joint institution of the Clinical Neuroimmunology Group (director Friedemann Paul) at the NeuroCure Clinical Research Center and the Clinical and Experimental Multiple Sclerosis Center, Department of Neurology, at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
The Neurodiagnostics Laboratory offers neurovisual outpatient clinic services in collaboration with the Experimental and Clinical Research Center, Berlin.
