Dr. Federico von Samson-Himmelstjerna studied physics at the Freie Universität Berlin and the Universidad de Granada. He graduated with honors and wrote his diploma thesis at the Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY) in the field of elementary particle physics.
Subsequently he obtained his Ph.D. summa cum laude in the field of medical physics at the Fraunhofer Institute for Medical Image Computing (Fraunhofer MEVIS). In close cooperation with the University of Oxford, the University of Leiden and the Centre for Stroke Research of Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, he developed several methods of Hadamard time-encoded measurement of organ perfusion by means of MRT.
His technical focus areas are applied physics, medical and biophysics, medical engineering, mechanics and computer-based inventions.
Dr. von Samson-Himmelstjerna is a member of Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, the International Society for Magnetic Resonance (ISMRM) and the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB).
