prof. dr.

I am a nuclear medicine specialist and always trying to implement innovative diagnostic and therapeutic methods in imaging. My main research interests involve infectious and inflammatory diseases, tumor-immunology, and development of new-targeted diagnostic tools for PET imaging. The latter focus is carried out in close collaboration with our radiochemists. Within the lymphoma research Groningen team we have a close collaboration with the department of hematology. The research is focused on finding new methods for diagnosis and therapy evaluation in several types of lymphomas. We have a special interest in post-transplant lymphatic disorders (PTLD). Furthermore, we are developing and evaluating several fields of radionuclide therapy, so called theranostics.

Long axial field of view PET/CT in critically ill patients: lessons from a case report
Published in: Frontiers in Medicine
The introduction of new long axial field of view (LAFOV) scanners is a major milestone in positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging. With these new systems a revolutionary reduction in scan time can be achieved, concurrently lowering tracer dose. Therefore, PET/CT has come within reach for groups of patients in whom PET/CT previously was undesirable. In this case report we discuss the procedure of a continuous bed motion (CBM) total-body [18F]FDG PET/CT scan in an intensive care patient. We emphasize the clinical and technical possibilities with this new...
Salivary gland 18F-FDG-PET/CT uptake patterns in Sjögren’s syndrome and giant cell arteritis patients
Published in: Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology
OBJECTIVES: Wide variety in salivary gland 18F-FDG-uptake is observed in the general population. A general consensus about the usefulness of 18F-FDG-PET/CT to detect salivary gland inflammatory conditions, such as in primary Sjögren’s syndrome (pSS), is not yet clear. This study aimed to investigate whether there are differences in uptake of 18F-FDG in salivary glands among two autoimmune groups [pSS, giant cell arteritis (GCA)] and a non-autoimmune group (lung cancer). METHODS: PSS patients aged ≥50 years who underwent 18F-FDG-PET/CT were included and age-matched with GCA patients and a non-autoimmune...
The clinical value of quantitative cardiovascular molecular imaging: a step towards precision medicine
Published in: British journal of radiology
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the leading cause of death worldwide and have an increasing impact on society. Precision medicine, in which optimal care is identified for an individual or a group of individuals rather than for the average population, might provide significant health benefits for this patient group and decrease CVD morbidity and mortality. Molecular imaging provides the opportunity to assess biological processes in individuals in addition to anatomical context provided by other imaging modalities and could prove to be essential in the implementation of precision medicine in...
