Research Programs


Ivana Išgum graduated in Mathematics at the University of Zagreb, Croatia in 1999. The same year she was employed as a scientific software engineer at Silicon Biomedical Instruments BV, The Netherlands. In 2001 she became a PhD student at the Image Sciences Institute. Her PhD degree was obtained in 2007 with a thesis entitled Computer-aided detection and quantification of arterial calcifications with CT. She then worked for a year as a PostDoc at the Laboratory for Clinical and Experimental Image Processing in Leiden University Medical Center on the detection of atherosclerotic carotid plaque from combined magnetic resonance angiography and vessel wall images. Ivana is currently an Associate Professor at UMC Utrecht where she is leading Quantitative Medical Image Analysis (QIA) group at the Image Sciences Institute. QIA group is focusing on the development of algorithms for quantitative analysis of medical images to enable automatic patient diagnosis and prognosis using techniques from the fields of machine learning and deep learning.
