Keynote Speaker

Ole Solheim, MD, PhD

Dr. Ole Solheim is a consultant neurosurgeon at St.Olavs University Hospital and Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway. He has extensive experience with intraoperative ultrasound both in terms of clinical use and research, and he has been involved in research and development of new technology for neurosurgery for more than a decade. His main area of research interest is brain cancer including risk factors, tumor growth, quality of life, imaging and treatment strategies.
