Description

NEUROIMAGING WEBINARS POWERED BY EATRIS AND NEURATRIS

We are pleased to announce that EATRIS and NEURATRIS are launching a series of webinars on Neuroimaging in November of this year. The series will cover the usage of CEST-MRI, optical  imaging, PET and Ultrahigh Field MRI in neurodegenerative diseases and their potential application in translational medicine. These webinars will be brought to you by experts in the field.

All webinars will take place from 14:00-15:00 CET and are free of charge. The neuroimaging webinars include an audience Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions at the end of the lecture. Please note that all webinars will be recorded and available for later viewing.

 

SESSION 3: NOVEMBER 27TH 14.00 – 15.00 (CET)

PET imaging to investigate neurodegenerative diseases by Sonja Lavisse and Nadja van Camp

Accurate and prompt diagnosis is vital to accommodate differential prognostic and brain disease management approaches, and to assess the efficacy of experimental therapeutic interventions in clinical trials. PET imaging plays a pivotal role in this regard by providing an in vivo opportunity to visualize the neuroanatomical and functional signatures of these disorders, as well as identifying disease-specific biomarkers of the underlying neurodegenerative processes.

This presentation will provide a brief introduction of the PET modality followed by an overview of the prominent preclinical and clinical application of this well-established and promising imaging tool in neurodegenerative diseases.
