Research interests

My research focus is on medical imaging from quality assurance to navigated surgery.

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

In image QA we investigate automated detection/evaluation and design of QA phantoms in x-ray and nuclear medicine. For navigated surgery we developed AR devices and evaluated th accuracy of CAS systems.
