MD Dissertation successfully defended!

Our long-standing team member, Daniel Preuß, has just successfully defended his MD dissertation. The work shows that the diagnostic performance of static myocardial CT perfusion cannot be raised by using Multisegment Reconstruction (MSR) instead of Halfscan Reconstruction (HSR) in detecting obstructive coronary artery disease. Daniel Preuß first-authored one paper in European Radiology experimental as part of the dissertation and additionally presented research results on the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna. The thesis was awarded “magna cum laude”. Daniel Preuß would like to especially thank his first supervisor, Prof. Dr. Marc Dewey, and his second supervisor and second reader, Dr. Matthias Rief, as well as the whole team of the research group for the support and enjoyable time.
