After having obtained a master’s degree in Theoretical Physics at Utrecht University, Tristan started his PhD in 2012 at the Radiotherapy Department of UMC Utrecht. His work focused on MRI-guided radiotherapy for breast cancer patients, and included magnetic-field-effects on the skin dose, optimizing MRI for visualization of individual lymph nodes, and analyzing intra-fraction motion using MRI. Tristan completed his PhD and started his training as medical physics resident in Radiotherapy in 2017.
