Mathias Prokop, MD

Mathias Prokop, M.D. has been appointed head of the department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at Radboud University Nijmegen in 2009 after having served as Professor of Radiology at UMC Utrecht since 2004. In 1998 he started working as an associate professor of Radiology at the University of Vienna Medical School, Austria. He trained as a radiologist at Hanover Medical School, Germany and earned a Bachelor of Science in Physics at Philipps-University Marburg, Germany.

Prof. Prokop is an expert in body imaging with a special focus on multislice CT and new imaging technologies. As one of the first users of the various generations of multislice CT scanners, he is working on new and improved imaging applications, with a special focus on cardiovascular and thoracic imaging. His department is now working on technical breakthroughs in the fields of computer-aided diagnosis, robot-assisted interventions, as well functional image analysis including MR spectroscopy, perfusion imaging with MR and CT, and molecular imaging agents for lymph node diagnostics. The ultimate goal is to use technology to make the healthcare of the future more affordable by increasing automation of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, thus freeing manpower for those areas in patient care in which the “human touch” is most needed.


The author of more than 250 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, 50 book chapters, 300 scientific abstracts, and 300 invited lectures, Prof. Prokop has published a textbook on body computed tomography that focuses specifically on multislice technology and has been translated into 5 languages. Prof. Prokop served on several industry advisory boards as well as various scientific committees, most recently the Fleischner Society.. He has been consultant to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on radiation protection in CT. He was vice chairman of the Dutch Radiological Society and he has received several awards from leading radiological societies including the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the German Roentgen Society. He is a Fellow of the Society of Body CT and Magnetic Resonance (SBCTMR) and honorary member of the Hungarian Society of Radiology.
