Personal profile


Björn Östenson

MD, PhD student



Admitted on 2020-04-01 as part-time doctoral student (80%) and clinical physiologist (20%) in the Cardiac MR Group at the Department of Clinical Physiology and Nuclear Medicine, Skåne University Hospital, Lund.

First contact with the research group was as a bachelor- and master student during medical school, Lund University. I was involved in projects regarding imaging biomarkers for patients indicated for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) and real-time cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging during supine exercise. I Finished medical school in 2018 and was admitted as research student in the Cardiac MR Group the same year. I was continuing with my earlier projects and including new test subjects for exercise CMR. This would be the foundation of my doctoral studies, which began in spring 2020.
