Anna Bjällmark

Universitetslektor medicinsk teknik
Docent

Anna Bjällmark disputerade år 2010 på Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan med en avhandling om ultraljudsbaserade metoder för att utvärdera hjärtkärlfunktion och blev docent i Medicinsk teknik år 2015. Sedan disputationen har hon fortsätt jobba med metodutveckling inom ultraljud med koppling till hjärtkärlfunktion men också kopplat till fosterdiagnostik samt funktion hos senor och muskler. En teknik som använts och utvecklats är shear wave elastography som möjliggör elasticitetsmätningar med ultraljud. Simuleringar och algoritmutveckling har varit en del av forskningen som Anna bedrivit. Anna har också jobbat med utveckling och validering av ett nytt multimodalt kontrastmedel inom ramen för ett FP7 EU-projekt. År 2017 kom Anna till Hälsohögskolan och arbetar för närvarande med att undervisa studenter inom Biomedicinsk analytikerprogrammet, Röntgensjuksköterskeprogrammet och Tandhygienistprogrammet samt bedriva forskning inom medicinsk avbildning.
