Wilbert Bartels graduated in Applied Physics at Eindhoven University of Technology in 1997. In 2001 he received his PhD at Utrecht University after defending his thesis entitled "Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Guidance and Evaluation of Endovascular Therapy". Currently, he works at the UMC Utrecht as an Associate Professor, where he supervises a number of PhD candidates and MSc students. He has (co-)authored over 100 peer reviewed journal papers. Dr. Bartels is the director of the MSc programme Medical Imaging offered at Utrecht University in close collaboration with Eindhoven University of Technology. He acts as a coordinator and lecturer in several courses in the field of medical imaging in general and MRI physics in particular. His main research interests are in the field of MRI physics, with a focus on MRI methods for planning, guidance and evaluation of therapy, like MRI-guided high intensity focused ultrasound therapy.
