Topic 1: Solution of the Inverse Problem using Beamforming (M. Sc. Nawar Habboush)

Magnetocardiography (MCG) is a non-invasive technique that use a group of SQUID sensors (typically 64 sensors) to measure the propagated magnetic field from the heart at the torso surface, it interesting though to find out the source of this magnetic field inside the heart. Therefore, we use the inverse problem methods to estimate the location, orientation and strength of the source signal at the source domain, in this case, the heart. The inverse problem methods are algorithms that use the sensors measured signal as an input and calculate the estimated heart activity as an output.

The aim of this project is to implement the beamforming method as an inverse problem solution using MATLAB and then compare the result with other methods that are already implemented. The students will also need to do a small literature research at the beginning. This project work will take place at university hospital complex in Kiel (UKSH).

Jugend Forscht

On November 24th, one of our DSS team members, Owe Wisch, took part in the "Jugend forscht Perspektivforum" at the CAU. Thirty young students from the "Jugend forscht" project came to Kiel and participated in three different workshops focusing on career paths in maritime climate protection. Owe Wisch from our chair lead one of the workshops and presented his research topics, beamforming ...
