About me

  • Adjunct Professor of Epidemiology at the Institute of Environmental Medicine
    as of 1 March 2022.
    Primary position: Consultant at Karolinska University Hospital.


  • Magnus Kaijser has worked with both clinical epidemiology and neuroradiology.
    In his research, he combines these two fields to study the use of diagnostic
    radiology in healthcare. The aim of his work is to study the use of
    diagnostic radiology and to create a basis for its improvement.
    Over the coming years, Magnus Kaijser’s research will use data from Region
    Stockholm’s common radiological archive. This archive contains referral
    notes and radiology reports from all diagnostic radiology in the region from
    the past two decades, and by linking data from this archive with data from
    other health registers a variety of research topics can be addressed.
    Magnus Kaijser is planning both studies on medical associations, such as the
    extent to which radiological examinations increase the risk of cancer and if
    head trauma affects the risk of neurodegenerative diseases, and on how
    appropriate the diagnostic procedures in current practice are for answering
    different clinical questions.
