     I worked for many years as an Associate Professor, Deputy Head of the Clinical Department for Nuclear Medicine and as Head of the Therapy Unit including the aftercare outpatient clinic at the University Clinic General Hospital Vienna (AKH). I care for patients from the entire field of nuclear medicine, especially patients with thyroid diseases, but also Neuroendocrine Tumours (NET) and prostate cancer.

     My medical studies at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich were followed by specialist training at the Großhadern University Hospital in Munich, where from 2009 I was responsible for the thyroid outpatient department and the therapy ward as a senior physician. 

     In 2013 I switched as deputy head to the clinical department for nuclear medicine at the University Hospital Vienna General Hospital. As the head of two of the largest nuclear medicine therapy wards in Europe, I was able to acquire extensive specialist knowledge, even with rare and complex diseases. Together with my team, I was able to introduce the new therapy with 177Lu-PSMA for patients with advanced prostate cancer in Vienna. 

     In addition, I  headed the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Applied Metabolomics, head of the Congress Committee of the Austrian Society for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, and was member of the "Nuclides in Nuclear Therapy" working group of the "Radiation Protection in Medicine" committee of the Radiation Protection Commission, Federal Office for Radiation Protection. As an author, I have published more than 140 scientific articles in international journals and so far have given over 100 specialist lectures at national and international congresses. I received several awards including the European Award in Medicine: Nuclear Medicine in 2022.

     In my doctor´s office I like to take my time for a comprehensive and individual treatment based on the latest scientific findings.
