DG Research & Innovation to speak on medical imaging


The Keynote Presentation in the Radiology & Medical Imaging Stream of the HOPE Congress will be given by Dr Irene Norstedt, Head of Unit for Innovative and Personalised Medicines within the Directorate General for Research and Innovation at the European Commission.

Dr Norstedt will kick off the 2 day conference by looking at the possible regulatory issues around personalise medicine in so far as it intersects with imaging. Following a recent increase in interest in this subject, this is sure to provoke much discussion and give delegates a first look at what might be required in order to comply with regulatory changes in the future.

The Radiology & Medical Imaging Stream features 16 speakers over 2 days, representing 10 different countries. Key themes include efforts to standardise and harmonise the training of radiologists across Europe, the importance of interdisciplinary co-operation in diagnosing from medical imaging and the challenges of integrating digital upgrades in hospital radiology units.
