Biosketch: Dr. Anja Almén

Anja Almén is a Senior Medical Physicist at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital. She holds a PhD in Radiation physics from the University of Lund. Former research areas have mainly been focusing on the field of radiation safety in radiology. Her work at Sahlgrenska is focusing on developing the framework for management, governance and organization of radiation safety. Present research interest is the process of optimizing radiological safety in health care, involving new medical technology, a multi professional environment and different types of treatments and diagnosis.

She is involved in a the research project in connection to Studio 1 Radiation safety, aiming at studying visualization of radiation exposure and its implications on the optimization process. This project is collaboration with researchers from Gothenburg Research Institute and from the Department of Education, communication and learning at the University of Gothenburg.
