Hedvig Krona is a PhD Student at the Medical Faculty of Lund University since 2012. In april 2016 she had her half way review and plans on finishing her dissertation in late 2017.

The research project is within the field of forensic psychiatry and comprises all individuals from the Malmö University Hospital catchment area sentenced to forensic psychiatric in-treatment during the years 1999-2005. The aims of the study are to give an in-depth background and clinical description of the cohort (n=125), to analyse risk factors associated with recidivism during the 15 year follow up period, to test the predictive validity of these risk factors for general and violent criminality and to analyze the possible connection between results from SPECT-scans and results of the psychopathy checklists.
