About the Author
Marion is an internationally active Neuroradiologist and full professor at Erasmus MC who combines clinical work with scientific research into applied physiological MR neuroimaging, such as functional MRI, diffusion and perfusion imaging. She uses these techniques to visualise the brain’s function and microarchitecture, and to study pathophysiological and regenerative processes in a variety of neurological diseases. Her main focus is on neuro-oncology.
Marion combines her clinical expertise with scientific research and active participation in key international organisations, including the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the European Society of Neuroadiology (ESNR), the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB), the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), and the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS). She uses this unique combination of affiliations to establish productive connections between relevant clinical research questions and to implement scientific innovation in clinical practice, while disseminating knowledge and expertise through her numerous national and international teaching activities.
