Research staff

Ole Graumann, Head of Research, Assisant Professor, Consultant

Ole Graumann is board certified in radiology.
He has special interest in oncology intervention and is one of the leading experts in Europe within Cryo ablation of renal cancer. Ole Graumann has in an impressing innovative way built an extremely effective teamwork-based CT intervention team. People from around the world are visiting the CT intervention team at Odense University Hospital to see and get inspiration from the workflow. Dr Graumann is a proctor and has trained many colleagues in the Northern Europe. He currently serves as Head of Research at the Innovation Unit of Radiology at University of Southern Denmark. Dr Graumann has led and participated in a multitude of clinical trials and research. He is currently main and co-supervisor to many PhD students and post doctorial. At the moment, the largest research area is Cryo ablation, artificial intelligence, clinical skill training and eduation. Ole Graumann has written and contributed to a number of scientific books and published works within the subject of radiology. Dr Graumann is becoming Professor of Radiology within the near future.

Maryann Hardy, Adjunct Professor

Professor of Radiography & Imaging Practice Research, Bradford University
Vice President at the British Institute of Radiology

Appointed Adjunct Professor at the Research  and Innovation Unit of Radiology, University of Southern Denmark and Odense University Hospital

Research plan:
”Radiographers’ Role in Population Safeguarding: Non-accidental Injury (NAI) / Suspected Physical Injury (SPI)”
The research area will support the highly specialized function of radiological imaging in suspected child abuse and among other aspects it will assess radiation dose and, radiographers’ skills, training etc.

Michael Pedersen, Adjunct Professor

Professor in biotechnology og bioimaging at Department of Clinical Medicine – Comparative Medicin Lab, Aarhus University

Appointed Adjunct Professor at the Research  and Innovation Unit of Radiology, University of Southern Denmark and Odense University Hospital

Research plan:
Experimental diagnostic medical imaging research – Accelerated validation process and implementation in clinical practice.
Special emphases will be on the following initiatives:
1) Renal disease including cancer: Diagnostic imaging to avoid biopsy and monitor treatment response.
2) Liver disease: Diagnostic imaging to avoid biopsy and monitor treatment response.
3) Brain and kidney elastography – MRI elastography could become a new method to measure the pressure in ventricles and fibrosis in the kidneys.

Nanna Lind Andersen, undergraduate research year student

Nanna is a medical student and is attached to our research unit during her research year project:

Ultrasound training in Point of Care Ultrasound (PoC US) for medical students

The aim of the study is to compare the efficacy of a traditional instructor led class teaching the basic operation skills of an ultrasound machine with a completely virtual, self-directed lesson in virtual reality (VR) teaching the same principles. In this scenario, both immediate and long term learning efficacy is of interest and will be scored by a standardized test at the training lessons as well as the final university examination a few months later.
