Katrinus Keijnemans obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s in Biomedical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology. During his Master, he completed courses on the topics of MR physics and radiotherapy physics. He conducted an internship on fast MR spectroscopy imaging at the Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance in Hvidovre, Denmark. His graduation project was performed at the radiotherapy department of the UMC Utrecht, which led to a novel 2D based 4D-MRI method for fast imaging of the thoracic and abdominal regions.
After his graduation in October 2020, he continued this graduation project as a PhD candidate in November 2020. During his PhD, the focus will be on further refining the 4D-MRI method and to extend the current method to be applicable during beam-on for MLC tracking and dose calculation.
