Evidence-based radiography for person-centered care in cancer diagnostics

My name is Ann-Sofi Sjöqvist, and I am a registered radiographer, MSc and doctoral student. I work in Malmö at the Department of Medical Imaging and Physiology Skåne university Hospital and have been working with MRI since 2004. Between 2007 and 2011 I worked at Hvidovre Hospital in Denmark at the DRCMR department and there is where my research interest awoke. In Denmark I enrolled for a master program in MRI, radiography at Karolinska Institutet (at start in collaboration with the University of Trondheim, Norway) and finished my project about an MRI-sequence optimization comparison for patients with rectal cancer.

The doctoral project is a mixed-method study about experiences in women with inherited risk of breast cancer undergoing yearly surveillance with MRI breast in Sweden. The study questions are: i) to describe women´s perception of being included and participating in surveillance with MRI and the perception of caring during the examination, ii) to elucidate women´s lived experiences being part of yearly surveillance with MRI, iii) to investigate health-related quality of life, anxiety and psychosocial consequences of surveillance with MRI and iv) to investigate predictors for affected health-related quality of life, anxiety and psychosocial experiences of surveillance with MRI.

This project started in 2020 and is a multi-centered study in Sweden. Data collection has started in Region Skåne but our participants will be selected from different departments in Sweden performing MRI breast in women with inherited high-risk of breast cancer.
