Research programmes

Prof. MD PhD M. Maas (Musculoskeletal Radiology with special focus on Sports, Education and Biomarker development)

Sports: exploring overuse and related injuries in adolescent elite athletes by using qualitative and quantitative imaging and non-imaging strategies.

Education: explore innovative mainly blended educational strategies both in undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Biomarker development: search for (semi)quantitative imaging biomarkers in the field of metabolic radiology, inflammatory radiology and cartilage.
