Clinical & Research Focus
Already during my medical studies at the Medical University Innsbruck I developed a keen interest in tumor diseases and their treatment options. Later, my training in Salzburg led to my intense scientific analysis of the "Cosmetic evaluation of long-term results after intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) of the conservative operated breast carcinoma", which finally led to my dissertation on this subject.

Due to the cooperation between MedAustron and the University Clinic for Radiation Therapy and Radiation Oncology, I was able to conclude my specialist training in Salzburg. Besides content wise penetration of the area of radiation therapy and radiation oncology, I had a focus also on image-based radiation therapy, intensity modulated stereotactic photon technology and intraoperative radiation therapy with electrons.

During my training, continuing education at MedAustron and international trainings in the course of a clinical stay abroad at the Centro Nazionale di Adroterapie Oncologica (CNAO) in Pavia, Italy, further deepened my understanding of particle therapy.

At MedAustron, I now focus on the "classical" areas of application of particle therapy, including the skull base and re-irradiation of recurrent tumors. Additionally, my focus lies on the treatment of pediatric tumors, prostate carcinoma and thoracic tumors.

In the center of my clinical work are our patients. I want to support them in the best possible way by applying the high-precision particle therapy. By applying the interdisciplinary and state-of-the-art particle therapy, I want to make a significant contribution to the treatment of their tumor diseases.
