Carestream Molecular Imaging is sponsoring a complimentary seminar on Imaging Technologies & Strategies in Pre-Clinical Small Animal Research on Dec. 6, in Cambridge, Mass.
In this half-day seminar, participants will explore the work of three independent research scientists from Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, who specialize in small animal research using optical/x-ray, nuclear and/or CT systems.
They will discuss the role of using diverse imaging modalities within their research, including fusion techniques and strategies, to simultaneously study biodistribution and efficacy of therapeutic candidates, new probe development and validation, as well as designing target-specific theragnostics and monitoring therapeutic efficacy.
There will also be a presentation by scientists from Carestream on new PET and SPECT detector technologies, as well as a discussion regarding a new platform architecture for high resolution optical/x-ray imaging that combines luminescence, fluorescence, radioisotopic and x-ray modalities in one system.
In vivo imaging topics to be covered:
- Biomarker development and validation;
- Therapeutics delivery and efficacy evaluation;
- Oncology and infectious disease model progression assessment;
- Protein expression and receptor occupancy studies; and
- A review of multimodal imaging studies from peer-reviewed literature.
The seminar will take place at the Boston Marriott Cambridge from 8:30am to 2:00pm.
