Patient-data Tracking, Collection and Modelling

We are looking for two self-motivated postdocs with a strong interest in working in a flagship multidisciplinary project between Erasmus MC and TU Delft, supported by the Convergence initiative. The goal of this project is to identify and integrate various sources of patient and research data within the Erasmus MC. A core challenge of that integration is to derive a common data model covering all data aspects of these sources which will then be t...

Combining Smart Surgical Knife with Augmented Reality

We are looking for two self-motivated postdocs with a strong interest in working in a flagship multidisciplinary project between Erasmus MC and TU Delft on the topic of smart surgery, supported by the Convergence initiative. In this project, we have two main goals. The first is on the topic of Augmented Reality (AR) for surgery. In surgical procedures, tissue deep inside organs is not visible to the surgeon. However, the position of such tissue m...

Quantitative Susceptibility MRI

Upon close inspection seemingly distinct problems are often underpinned by the same scientific challenges. In this project we face this situation in relation to diagnosing heart disease and improving neurosurgery. The challenge we take up is to use Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to detect tiny magnetic field alterations, called susceptibilities, induced by the vessel networks in the heart and brain. Advanced post-processing and machine learning...
