This project is initiated by Stan Buckens, a radiologist from the RadboudUMC, who believes in realizing passive four-dimensional (4D) CT scans for the wrist. At this moment the wrist is mainly scanned and reviewed statically in 3D. However, it is desirable to see what happens on a CT scan during movement (the fourth dimension) of the wrist, as...

Demand for air traffic is growing worldwide. In order to accommodate this growth, existing infrastructure such as gates should be used more efficiently. One technique to increase gate utilization is by introducing gate pit-stops. Introducing gate pit-stops leads to additional towing movements which can potentially interfere with other traffic on...
