Academic advisor for the Master Course "Medical Systems Engineering"

Since the winter term 2018/2019 I am responsible for the organization of the Master Course Medical Systems Engineering (MSE).

Lecture and seminar: Instruments for Image Guided Therapies (IIGT)

During the winter term 2015-2016 and 2016-2017, I will gave one single lecture about different artefacts which can occur in different medical imaging technologies. This was part of the Instruments for Image Guided Therapies (IIGT) lecture which was held by Prof. Friebe. In addition, I gave a hands-on seminar about MRI guided interventions using an optical tracking system which was also part of this lecture.

Lecture and exercise: Introduction to Medical Imaging

From 2012-2014, I was responsible for the the lecture and the exercise Introduction to Medical Imaging. This lecture was held for Bachelor and Master students.
