EmpowerMINT Award for Patricia Fuchs

EmpowerMINT-PreisOur university awards excellent achievements of female students in mathematics, IT, natural sciences and technology (known as the MINT subjects). This year Patricia Fuchs was awarded for her Bachelor thesis on the development and implementation of a magnetic heart axis estimation. We congratulate Patricia Fuchs to the EmpowerMINT award.

The thesis was supported with technical and medical expertise. In order to be able to compare the magnetically achieved results with conventional examinations (based on ECG), test persons were examined by Dr. Daniel Körbächer in his practice in Mönkeberg. The same persons were then magnetically measured at the Faculty of Engineering. Through this new method, the heart position of patients can be estimated more accurately and also in 3D (so far, this analysis is carried out only in the body level, i.e. in 2D). Ms. Fuchs was also supported by Prof. Frey, Head of Cardiology at the Heidelberg Hospital (and also a member of the SFB 1261). Erik Engelhardt and Gerhard Schmidt supervised the work on behalf of the Faculty of Engineering.
