We are looking for a student who can help us out with the imaging analysis of diffusion (DKI) or perfusion (ASL) MRI data acquired during the brain tumor surgery of children (intraoperative MRI).

From August on we will open our surgery facility with an adjourned MR suite, at the Princess Máxima Centre in Utrecht. The main goal of these scans is to assist the neurosurgeon in reviewing whether all brain tumor tissue has been removed. But we could also use these scans to gain insight into clinical effects that can occur a couple of days after surgery in these children. Examples are post-operative epilectic seizures or cerebellar mutism syndrome, which is a speech and motor disorder.

By analyzing the fiber tracts (diffusion MRI, DKI) and the cerebral blood flow (perfusion MRI, ASL), we hope to get a better understanding of the development of these clinical effects. You are welcome to start from January 2023 onwards. Please don’t hesitate to reach out via the application e-mail if you have any questions.
