Wouter B. Veldhuis (PhD, MD) is Radiologist at the University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands. He is the initiator of IMAGR, the vendor neutral AI infrastructure that brings deep-learning algorithms directly into the clinical workflow in the UMC Utrecht. He is Cofounder of QuantibU, a translational AI startup active in the field of medical imaging. 

He is also the initiator of, an interactive platform for radiology teaching applications, that have been recognized as finalist or winner "Best Radiology Mobile App" by over 9 times in the past years. He furthermore developed, a portal that gives patients direct access to their medical imaging data.


Dr. Veldhuis is the coordinating radiologist of the DENSE trial and designed the DENSE MRI protocol that has been running on top of the Dutch Breast Cancer Screening Program for the past 10 years. He holds a PhD in Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Methods, and has authored over 180 publications ( Before coming to Utrecht he was an Oncologic Imaging Scholar at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre in New York, funded by the MSKCC and the European Society for Radiology, and a postdoc at the Stanford University Richard M. Lucas MRI Center on a grant from the Dutch Cancer Society (KWF).

In 2015 he received the “Wiarda Award” from the Dutch Society of Radiology for the best Radiology Teacher.
