dr. ir. K.L. (Koen) Vincken Associate Professor

  • Image Sciences Institute

K.L. Vincken


Research Programs


Koen Vincken graduated in Computer Science at the Delft University of Technology in 1989. In 1995 he received his PhD at the Utrecht University. The title of his thesis was "Probabilistic Multiscale Image Segmentation by the Hyperstack". He then continued working at the Image Sciences Institute (ISI), lead by prof. Max A. Viergever (Imaging Division) of the University Medical Center Utrecht

He is currently working as an Associate Professor at ISI. His main focus was software development for a.o. the dept. of radiology, neurology, orthopaedic, rheumatology and several external partners related to the ISI. In 2001 he was involved in the reconstruction of Trijntje, the oldest skull ever found in The Netherlands. He reconstructed the deformed skull on the computer, after which a hard copy of the skull (synthetic material) was obtained using stereolithography. The face of Trijntje could then be modeled by physical anthropologist Maja d'Hollosy and exhibited.

He was supervisor of several MSc and PhD students, as well as consultant for a few external projects. His main interests are medical image applications and quantitative image analysis.

He was project leader of the Brainbox project, that focused on the quantitative analysis of MR brain images for cerebrovascular disease and the translation from research to industry.

His main interest is currently the development of a new digital tool (VQuest) for educational testing with volumetric (3D) images. VQuest is currently extended as a tool foor eTesting, eLearning and eTeaching. Co-developers are Christian Mol (Imaging Division of the UMC Utrecht) and Cécile Ravesloot (Radboud UMC, Nijmegen). VQuest is currently the application used for all radiological assessments in the UMC Utrecht for different levels of expertise (2nd year med students, radiology residents), and used in many other institutes (national and international).

Koen Vincken is married and has three children, two boys (Jelle, 1995 and Hidde, 2000) and a girl (Jente, 1998).
