I have been working at the Netherlands Cancer Institute since 2014. I decided to work at this hospital because of its unique combination of high-quality care and focus on the patient. Like my colleagues, I consider my work successful if I have been able to go the extra mile for my patients.
During my training at the UMC Utrecht, I applied myself to the combination of various imaging techniques, like PET scans in combination with CT scans, in order to improve imaging for better diagnoses and procedures. One example is the minimally invasive procedure of liver tumors with radioactive seeds that are administered into the hepatic artery. This procedure is provided by a specialized team of people from the Nuclear Medicine and Radiology departments.
