As a medical physicist in the radiation oncology department of Erasmus MC, I am involved in the continuous innovation process of the department to assure front-edge patient care.
My research aims at adapting the radiotherapeutic doses to the daily anatomical changes observed when treating pelvic tumors (gynecology, bladder), in order to minimize the treatment side effects and improve the patient quality of life. Next to my clinical and research duties, I am a university course coordinator for Technical Medicine bachelor and master students.
Field(s) of expertise
- Adaptive radiotherapy for gynecology and bladder tumor
- Proton and megavoltage photon therapy
- Permanent Breast Seed Implantation for low grade breast tumor
- 3D dose reconstruction for external beam treatment verification
