After post graduate surgical training including radiology orientated research with numerous international publications, Dr Bekker completed most of his radiological training at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
His specialty training included a neuro and ENT subspecialty post, recognised in the UK. This was conducted under the guidance of Professor van der Lugt, Professor Krestin (former president of the ECR) and Dr Vernooij, consultant neuroradiologist. In this position, Dr Bekker worked across all radiological modalities within his areas of interest. This year, Dr Bekker did further training in Guy’s hospital in London on sialoplasty in dental radiology under guidance of Jacky Brown, dental Radiologist.
