  • Image Sciences Institute



Yulia Shcherbakova graduated in Medical Physics from Moscow Engineering Physics Institute, the faculty of experimental and theoretical physics, in 2008.

From 2010 to 2014 she worked in General Electric Healthcare (covering Russia and CIS) as Application Specialist in MRI.

In April 2014 she started as a PhD candidate at the University Medical Center Utrecht in the project “Image Guided Cancer Therapy: Real-Time Target Tracking in MRI-guided HIFU and MRI-guided RadioTherapy”.  She was working on MRI acquisition methods for accurate 3D tumor visualization, and on the optimization of methods for quantitative MRI.

In December 2019 she received her PhD at Utrecht University after defending her thesis “PLANET: a new approach for quantitative MRI”.

From December 2021 she has been working as a postdoc at the Image Science Institute (ISI) in the project “Scolistorm”. Her research focuses on the development and the optimization of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) – specific MR protocol.
