Natural Sciences and Engineering
Ton van der Steen, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Erasmus Medical Centre and Professor of Applied Physics, Delft University of Technology, works at the interface between medicine and technology.
He is using new techniques to attempt to detect atherosclerotic plaques. Plaque causes the arteries to narrow. A ruptured artery can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Van der Steen works with ultrasound and other technologies to improve heart disease treatment.Explore NARCIS for research activities and publications
