Dr. Arthur Bouwman

Arthur Bouwman did his anesthesiology training at the VU UMC (Amsterdam) in 2004-2010. He combined his residency with a PhD study on the cardioprotective properties of inhalational anesthetics. After his PhD, he continued his research on perioperative cardiovascular function and advanced monitoring techniques using (contrast-enhanced) ultrasound, supervising several PhDs. In his clinical work, he further specialized in perioperative care for cardiac patients and ultrasound. In 2013, he moved to the Catharina Hospital Eindhoven, where he provides anesthesia care to patients undergoing open-chest or percutaneous cardiac surgery procedures; his main focus is on advanced monitoring technology, ultrasound, and clinical decision support.

Dr.ir. Jacques den Boer

Dr. ir. Jacques den Boer was born on 11 november 1938 in Vlaardingen, Netherland, educated in technical physics at Delft University and employed by Philips Research and Philips Medical Systems until 1995. He obtained his PhD at TU Delft in 1983 as a result of his study within Philips Medical Systems on a model of X-ray imaging systems. Since 1983 his interest has turned towards MR imaging, with emphasis on matching the clinical use of MR to the increasing power of the MR systems. Since his retirement he continued his professional interest as adviser on physics problems regarding medical MR
