After a Master Thesis about Use of Lasers in Medicine I worked as a messenger and Physics teacher. During my PhD about High resolution tomographic imaging of the alveolar region of the mammalian lung I worked as an external user at the TOMCAT beamline. Today I work as a Post-Doc in the X-Ray Tomography Group on a project for the GlobalDiagnostiX-Alliance, am responsible for our industry customers and supporting external users at the TOMCAT beamline. My research project is part of the GlobalDiagnostiX-Alliance, we are building an appropriate radiological X-ray system to be deployed into hospitals in developing countries. Approximately 4 billion people, about two-thirds of the world population don't have access to diagnostic imaging. First world countries try to solve this problem by donating old radiological equipement to hospitals in need. But, according to the WHO, about 70% of the more complex devices do not function when they reach their destination in developing countries. As part of the GlobalDiagnostiX-alliance, we want to challenge existing systems for generating and detecting x-rays for the medical domain. We currently focus on frugal engineering approaches to detect and digitize x-rays which allows to build a standards-compliant x-ray imaging device. The combined effort of the alliance will culminate in an appropriate diagnostic x-ray imaging system, which is adapted to the context of resource-poor settings and can be sold to district hospitals in developing countries for an affordable price.
