About Me

Hi, I am Sven,

I’m a DPhil.(PhD) candidate and Clarendon Scholar within the interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Centre at the University of Oxford.

My research project aims to develop new methods for cardiac gating and motion estimation using only power reflections of the transceiver MRI coils. The current gold standard for cardiac gating in the scanner, the electrocardiogram (ECG), can be affected by the high magnetic field strength in 7 Tesla MRI, resulting in missed or false trigger results that can increase scan time or significantly degrade image quality in cardiovascular MRI.
