Event: COVID-19: Inflammation and Molecular Imaging

- By Jacqueline Wheeler

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” Marie Curie

As vaccination programmes restore normality to the more fortunate nations, it has always been clear that immunisations alone will not be sufficient to keep the virus in check. 

The COVID-19: Inflammation and Molecular Imaging Workshop on May 20-23 at 15:00 CEST is an important opportunity to hear some of the world’s most distinguished and influential experts discuss the latest developments in molecular imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of Covid.

The panel includes Nobel Prize Winner Professor Arthur B McDonald PhD and Dr Anthony S Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and advisor to the US Government on Covid policies.

Direct Conversion looks forward to the key presentation by Leibniz Award Winner, Professor Dr Franz Pfeiffer PhD, in which he will provide an Overview of Imaging Modalities Used for the Detection of COVID-19. Professor Pfeiffer and his team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have just received approval from the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection to test their new X-ray dark-field imaging procedure for the diagnosis of Covid-19. The team’s initial paper, X-ray Dark-field Imaging of the Human Lung – A Feasibility Study on a Deceased Body, can be downloaded below. More about the forthcoming tests can be read here.

An extensive program devotes attention to combined imaging such as PET and CT and questions of low dose imaging for screening, as well as the role of AI in the development of new therapeutic approaches. 

Dr York Haemisch, our Director of Medical and Research Markets, will be reporting back from the event.
