Svenja Ipsen - University of Luebeck
Svenja Ipsen is currently enrolled at the University of Luebeck, Northern Germany, in the Master’s program of ‘Medical Engineering Science’. She completed her Bachelor thesis in early 2013, focussing on integrating 4D ultrasound imaging into a robotic radiotherapy system for motion compensation during treatment. Her interest in real-time imaging and tracking paved the way for finally joining the research group of Paul Keall. During her five month visit she will be investigating a new potential treatment branch of the MRI-Linac; treating cardiac arrhythmia with radiotherapy. This does not only involve challenges in dose calculations and modelling but also requires sophisticated real-time tracking methods. As the first ambassador of Luebeck she is looking forward to close collaboration, a vivid exchange of ideas and many unforgettable moments here in Sydney.
