headline-marker Successful habilitation for Dr. Claire Chalopin

Dr. Claire Chalopin successfully completed her habiliation process. Congratulations!

Her postdoctoral thesis deals with the technical development of intraoperative 3D ultrasound with contrast medium and dynamic infrared thermography (DIRT) for neurosurgery. The imaging technique shows promising results for the visualization of structures and the assessment of tissue perfusion, but needs to be more optimally integrated into the surgical workflow. In addition, computer assistants will support the analysis of the imaging data.
