Using microbubbles to predict microsphere distrubution

Tools to visualize and guide radiated microspheres towards the tumor during internal radiation of liver cancer are limited, resulting in suboptimal treatment and damage to healthy liver tissue. Within this project our aim is to introduce an innovative method, using microbubbles to guide the way for irradiated microspheres and improve treatment outcome.

What you will learn

You will learn about the latest innovations in radioembolization, using both in vitro testing and in vivo application. The imaging and experimental facilities in the Tech Med Centre will be at your full disposal, including fluoroscopy, MRI and ultrasound equipment. This allows you to become familiarized with the full range of imaging modalities used in clinical practice. Furthermore, research oriented US machines (Verasonics, Alpinion) are available to develop and test new imaging sequences. As a gold standard flow visualization technique we employ laser PIV, you will learn how to operate state-of-the-art high speeds camera's and lasers.


You will be part of the Multi-Modality Medical Imaging group of the University of Twente. You will work closely within the Imaging & Diagnostics Cluster of the Tech Med Centre. The position is 1.0 FTE for 24 months.


  • Are you interested in developing and testing a new treatment algorithm for radioembolization, all the way from bench to bedside?
  • Do you have a background in (contrast-enhanced) ultrasound imaging?
  • Are you able to create and control complex in vitro and ex vivo perfused liver setups?
  • Do you like to work in a multidisciplinary team?
The successful candidate is a Technical Physician or Biomedical Engineer with a PhD in technical-medical aspects of medical imaging. Experience in (contrast enhanced) ultrasound techniques is desirable. Quality research skills in these topics should have been demonstrated during the PhD. High creativity, high self-motivation, excellent command of English in speaking and writing as well as professional communication and team working skills is required. Excellent analytical and problem solving abilities are required.


We offer a position as a Postdoctoral Researcher according to the Job Classification System (UFO), and salary and conditions will be in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement (CAO) of the Dutch Universities. The salary amounts, depending on education and experience, minimal € 3.408,- to a maximum of € 4.474,- gross per month in case of full-time employment.

The offer further involves: a holiday allowance of 8% of the gross annual salary, a year-end bonus of 8.3%, a solid pension scheme, a minimum of 29 holidays, and numerous professional and personal development programmes.
