Research interests

The main research line is “ Imaging I 3 ”: Infection, Inflammation, and (tumor)Immunology

Infection:

  • Musculoskeletal: peripheral osteomyelitis, device-related infections such as prosthetic joint infections, diabetic foot infection, fracture-related infections

  • Cardiovascular: endocarditis, device-related infections such as vascular graft infections, intravascular prosthetic material infections

  • Sepsis/bloodstream infections: bacteremia, specific bacterial infections

  • Fungal infections

  • Infections in children

     

Inflammation:

  • Amyloidosis

  • Sarcoidosis

  • Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS

  • Atherosclerosis and vasculitis

  • Rejection and PTLD after organ transplantation

  • Inflammatory diseases in children

  • Sports injuries

     

(Tumor)immunology:

  • Imaging autoimmune reaction/checkpoints in tumors

  • Imaging of lymphocytes

  • Imaging of macrophages

 

Societal impact:

  • Development of diagnostic and therapeutic flowcharts in infectious and inflammatory diseases

  • Publication of several Dutch (NFU, NVNG) and European (EANM) guidelines/recommendations

  • Development and implementation of new specific tracers in infectious and inflammatory diseases (IL-2, PD1/PDL1, sorbitol, labelled antibiotics, labelled antifungal drugs)

  • Improvement of existing techniques for infection imaging (new protocols for white blood cell scintigraphy and FDG-PET)

  • Role of nuclear medicine in therapy evaluation of infectious and inflammatory diseases and during/after immunotherapy

 

Besides this Imaging I 3 research line, I also perform some research in the field of oncology (this is also the main differential diagnosis with infectious diseases in PET):

  • Imaging of hormonal receptors (FES-PET, FDHT-PET)

  • Imaging of brain tumors

  • Imaging of apoptosis

  • Imaging lymphomas

Other research tasks:

  • Co-chair research Medical Imaging Center

  • Responsible person for contract research Medical Imaging Center

  • Coordinator of the research line Oncology, Infection and Transplantation

  • Writing publications and grant applications

  • Writing Dutch (NFU, NVNG) and European (EANM) guidelines/recommendations

  • Reviewer of manuscripts

  • Collaboration with many external centers (Netherlands, Europe and worldwide)
