Om mig

I am a resident in diagnostic radiology at Karolinska University Hospital. Parallel to my residency, I pursue a PhD at University of Crete in Greece and assist with a variety of projects as a research collaborator at the division of Radiology of CLINTEC.


My PhD study is focused on the development and assessment of CT liver perfusion in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. CT liver perfusion is an innovative imaging technique that provides information on liver tissue microcirculation and can assist clinicians in the diagnosis of liver cancer, treatment choice and monitoring of modern therapeutic agents. The goal of my PhD is to refine the image acquisition and interpretation of CT Liver Perfusion and investigate whether it can be successfully incorporated in the everyday clinical practice. Simultaneously, I participate in several ongoing projects at KI pertaining to imaging of liver, pancreatic, esophageal and renal cancer.
