Bedrijfsomschrijving

The Radboudumc center advances human knowledge by conducting biomedical, translational and clinical research in order to improve wellbeing.

Our key strength is medical life-sciences and clinical practice, with an impressive infrastructure comprising state-of-the-art technology platforms and (translational) research facilities. The Radboudumc is therefore uniquely positioned in the emerging Euregio and Dutch healthcare infrastructure to play a leading role in the new healthcare paradigm of prediction, prevention and personalised medicine.

The Radboudumc focuses on scientific health challenges of today, with an eye on emerging diseases of the future.

Our mission: ‘to have a significant impact on healthcare’.

Recently, a grant of the Dutch Technology Foundation (NWO-TTW) was awarded for the project "GYNaecological Imaging using 3D Ultrasound (GYNIUS)". Goal of this project is to develop methods to obtain functional and morphological information of the female pelvic floor muscles by an automatic segmentation model and deformation imaging. Finally, these will be tested on patients with pelvic floor disorders.

GYNIUS is a collaboration between the department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of the University Medical Center Utrecht (Prof. Huub van der Vaart), the Medical UltraSound Imaging Center (MUSIC) of the Department of Radiology & Nuclear Medicine of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre (Prof. Chris de Korte), Twente University technical medicine (Prof. Kees Slump), Philips Ultrasound, and TomTec.
For GYNIUS, we have vacant positions for a full-time enthusiastic PhD student (4 years) and one part time (0.3) Post-Doc (4 years) at the Radboud University Medical Center. For the automatic segmentation and the clinical evaluation, PhD students have already been appointed at the Twente University and the University Medical Center Utrecht respectively. Each of the 3 participating academic centers are leading for medical science, education and health care.
