We work with four distinct themes based on the potential strengths of the University of Twente and UMCG/RUG. This consortium can jointly apply for grants, such as IMDI grants for which CMI-NEN is recognised as CoRE.



Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention, as well as visual representation of the function of some organs or tissues.

Image Guided Therapy

Image-guided therapy is the process of frequent two and three-dimensional imaging, during a course of treatment, used to direct therapy utilizing the imaging coordinates of the actual treatment plan.

Health Technology Assessment

Health technology assessment (HTA) is the systematic evaluation of the properties and effects of health technology, addressing the direct and intended effects of this technology, as well as its indirect and unintended consequences, and aimed mainly at informing decision making regarding health technologies.

Data Sciences

Data science is an inter-disciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge and insights from many structural and unstructured data.
