Biosketch: Sara Asplund

Sara Asplund (former Zachrisson) is a Medical Physicist who received her PhD in Radiation Physics at the Sahlgrenska Academy in 2014. In her thesis, a relatively new X-ray technique, chest tomosynthesis, was evaluated regarding the detection of lung nodules using human observers, for example radiologist. One of the main aims of the thesis was to investigate the learning effect of observers analyzing tomosynthesis images.
