Charlotta Lundh is a Medical Physicist at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital. She received her PhD at the Department of Radiation Physics, University of Gothenburg in 2008. In her work, Charlotta specialises in radiation protection issues both concerning patients and staff. Her research is related to visualization of radiation and how the visualisation can influence radiation doses to health care staff as well as to the patients. She is also interested in how systems for visualization of radiation can be used in radiation protection education of staff working in these environments.
