Research lines of Technical Medicine

Technical Medicine offers the students two master tracks; Medical Imaging and Interventions, and Medical Sensing and Stimulation. Each track is subdivided in a number of research domains. Below, we present an overview of the research lines in which our Master 3 students perform their clinical specialization. The lines are ordered per track and research domain.

For questions or to get in touch with researchers, please contact the ‘Technical Medicine internships Office’ at TGStageTNW@utwente.nl or call +313 53 489 3057.
