– It is an honor and very exciting at the same time, because it is an established conference in the field of medical thermography in Europe and are visited by many prominent researchers in the world.
When Katarina went off to Frankfurt with her posters she did not know what the trip would offer. She presented her research on how she with a infrared camera study thermoregulation of the skin on the hands.
– I got really good feedback and thoughts on my study, for example, performing measurements in a different way. It was a good input that I want to try.
It was very valuable for Katrine to make new contacts with researchers in the field, especially with Professors E. Francis J. Ring, James Mercer and Dr. Kevin Howel.
– To get these gentlemen to my network means a lot to me and my research. Because medical thermography is not so extensive in Sweden.
Professor Mercer, chairman of the EAT, took part of Katrine's research and invited her to give a presentation at the Congress EAT in Madrid autumn 2015.
– It usually gives a lot to conferences, but you never know exactly what. You have to be open to the opportunities offered, says Katarina Leijon Sundqvist.
