Ten world-leading scientists and clinicians will join an Australian contingent to showcase innovations in medical imaging; the impact on healthcare and how multi-disciplinary collaborations are taking this innovation into the clinic.
Presentations will feature imaging technologies and techniques emerging from academic and clinical research to provide a better platform for the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of cancer; cardiovascular problems; neurological diseases and disorders; mental health issues; and spinal trauma. Imaging@Brisbane will also explore the latest developments in radiotherapy and theranostics.
There will be a lunch-time debate titled ‘Finders Keepers: Who owns and who stores clinical imaging data for research’.
The Conference will wrap up with site visits to world-class imaging facilities including The University of Queensland Centre for Advanced Imaging; Herston Imaging Research Facility and the Translational Research Institute Innovation and Translation Centre in collaboration with Siemens Healthineers, with the aim of forming future collaborations and partnerships.
12 RANZCR CPD points can be claimed for attendance at Imaging@Brisbane 2018.
