AI in Radiology — Arna van Engelen

Arna van Engelen studied Medical Natural Sciences at the VU university in Amsterdam, with an MSc in Medical Physics. She graduated in 2009 on a project to determine the contraction pattern of the right ventricular wall of the heart from MRI images. Afterward she did a PhD at ErasmusMC in Rotterdam, where she developed image processing techniques to characterize the composition of carotid atherosclerotic plaques from non-invasive imaging techniques, such as MRI, CT and ultrasound. She continued this research during a post-doc at King's College London, and in 2018 she joined Quantib. Quantib is a growing company that develops AI software for radiology.
