Arie van 't Riet studied radiation physics at Delft University of Technology and obtained his PhD from Utrecht University. He was registered as a medical physicist and worked in the departments of radiotherapy, radiology and nuclear medicine. In the hospital he experienced the amazing progress of image quality and the introduction of new imaging modalities in the last decades.
At TEDxGroningen 2013, he explains how he discovered his artistic drive through the use of his x-ray machine, helping him reveal the beauty inside of nature.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
