Photo-/optoacoustics is a brand new field of biomedical imaging. As such we feel it is important to use as many forums as possible to educate potential new users about the value that MSOT can bring to their research.

Optoacoustic Imaging Meeting (Erlangen, 1st March 2018)

We welcome users and scientists interested in the preclinical and clinical use of optoacoustic imaging to participate in a one-day meeting, held at the University Hospital Erlangen.

The aim of the meeting is to stimulate informal and friendly discussion of the work being performed by MSOT and RSOM users and give the opportunity to meet other users and imaging-associated scientists.

Confirmed speakers and titles of their scientific presentation are as follows (as of 18th January 2018):

  • Oshi Abeyakoon (University of Cambridge)
    Clinical translation of breast cancer imaging using MSOT
  • Juan Aguirre (Helmholtz Center Munich)
    RSOM functional and morphological imaging of the dermal microvascular structure and its link to scleroderma diagnosis
  • Jeff Bamber (Institute of Cancer Research)
    Optoacoustic tomography to predict and measure tumour response to therapy in-vivo
  • Sarah Bohndiek (University of Cambridge / CRUK CI)
    Overview of the preclinical optoacoustic imaging work performed in the Vision Lab
  • Neal Burton (iThera Medical)
    Results of clinical trials and roadmap for clinical MSOT imaging
  • Katja Haedicke (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center)
    Overview of RSOM imaging performed at MSKCC
  • Alexa Hasenbach (University of Münster)
    Optoacoustic imaging of inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis
  • Joachim Klode (University Hospital Essen)
    Replacing technetium by using MSOT-based tri-modal imaging for lymphatic mapping and sentinel node detection

  • Maximilian Waldner (University Hospital Erlangen)
    Overview of optoacoustic research at the University Hospital Erlangen

The Meeting will be held at the University Hospital Erlangen, from 9:30 am until 6:15 pm, followed by an evening reception. Participation is free of charge, with a limited number of seats available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
