Our team


Our specialist doctors



The Diagnostic Medical Imaging Department at the Erasmus Hospital has recognised expertise in a number of fields and diseases and in neuro-oncology in particular. Before operating on a brain tumour, using an MRI 3 Tesla for example, so-called functional imaging and tractography (visual representation of nerve tracts) make it possible to map and thereby avoid the functional zones (motor, language, et.) during   neurosurgery.  



The Diagnostic Medical Imaging Department at the Erasmus Hospital participates in many clinic studies. It cooperates, among others, with the Neurosciences Department,  the  Neurosurgery, Rheumatology and Orthopaedic Departments and the Abdominal and Thoracic Medico-Surgical Departments.
