Guus Wisse (1983) studied MBRT (Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy) in Eindhoven (NL). After his Bachelor degree, he started working as a Medical Imaging Technologist at UMCU (University Medical Centre Utrecht).

MRI is a high-end system to provide medical imaging, and very suitable for (clinical) research. UMC Utrecht's Imaging Division has 16 MRI magnets and 2 under construction. The most is for clinical use, but also a few who are transformed from research to (pre-)clinical use. (7 Tesla, MR-Linac, MR-HIFU)
