Thierry Gevaert

Thierry Gevaert graduated as a medical physicist at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and defended his PhD, “Clinical implementation of frameless radiosurgery”, in 2012.  In 2016, he was nominated professor at the VUB and became the chief of medical physics at the UZ Brussel (UZB). His appointment in the department of radiotherapy involves research, teaching and clinical practice. Thierry is a board member, certified in therapeutic physics and is engaged in mentoring medical physics for graduate students, residents and medical engineers. His research and clinical interests include stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), motion management, the development of high-tech radiation techniques and image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), all with an emphasis on clinical implementation of translational research. Thierry has made numerous international and national presentations and published more than 50 peer-reviewed papers. Since 2015, he has been an auditor for the Novalis Certification programme.

Thierry Mertens

Thierry Mertens has a PhD in physics and nearly 15 years experience in medical physics and radiotherapy, with the major commitment to develop innovative quality assurance solutions to support the medical end-users with their clinical tasks. As business development manager for LAP since 2016, Thierry has been instrumental in the development of the THALES 3D MR SCANNER and has had the opportunity to work closely with pioneer users of the MRIdian system. He represents the customer voice within the LAP R&D team, ensuring that the end-user needs are fulfilled.

Tim Everaert graduated as a medical physicist at Ghent University in 2019. In 2020, he started his position as a medical physicist at UZ Brussel. His main focus is based on research and clinical implementation of new techniques in radiotherapy with an emphasis on stereotactic body irradiation (SBRT), motion management, and image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT). He is one of the core team members of online adaptive with MR linac.
