Riyas Vettukattil

Researcher / Clinician

I am a biomedical researcher with a dual background in biomedical engineering (PhD) and clinical Medicine (Medical Doctor). I work on multiple innovative projects where the key goal is centered on translation of scientific discoveries to enhance patient care and to bridge the gap between clinics and technology. I completed my medical degree (MBBS) and clinical training from India at Calicut Medical College. I received my Masters in Medical Science and Technology (MMST) from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. Then I moved to the Department of Radiology at Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), Netherlands. I worked as a research intern at Medis Medical Imaging BV in collaboration with Division of Image Processing (LKEB) at LUMC. Now am working at the Department of Circulation and Medical Imaging, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)
