18.11.2022 – Maximising Personalised Approaches through Imaging Biomarkers

November 18, 2022 – 13:30 CET

Speakers: Dimitris Visvikis Mathieu Hatt Margarita Kirienko
Moderator: Martina Sollini
Target Audience: Physicians, medical physicists, technologists

 

Content:

Patient stratification, treatment personalisation and response monitoring are key applications of multimodality imaging. The current clinical practice involves the integration of simple image semi-quantitative measures, representing global tumour characteristics and hence cannot capture the complete spectrum of information that can be extracted from acquired multimodality images. The hypothesis can be made that characterising tumour anatomical and functional heterogeneity in a global, regional, and/or local fashion using imaging biomarkers (radiomics) may be related to underlying tumour phenotype and associated heterogeneity. Although starting earlier in the field of anatomical imaging, the field of radiomics has over the last decade witnessed enormous growth in multimodality PET/CT/MR imaging. Finally, the recent introduction of artificial intelligence for the construction of predictive and prognostic models using imaging biomarkers will be discussed as well as remaining challenges for their introduction in routine clinical practice.

 

Learning Objectives:

After this webinar participants will

  • Understanding of the basics of radiomics.
  • Role of artificial intelligence in multiparametric modelling using imaging biomarkers.
  • Most promising clinical applications.
  • Challenges for their routine clinical implementation.

20.05.2022 – Burning Issues of Radioprotection in a Theranostic Unit

May 20, 2022 – 13:30 CEST

Speakers:

Jens Kurth

Arturo Chiti

Moderators:

Giovanni Tosi

Sigrid Leide Svegborn

Target Audience: Physicists, Physicians, Technologists, Nurses

 

Content:

Personalised medicine is widely discussed, but only intermittently implemented. The use of theranostics by whole-body molecular imaging modalities allows assessment of druggable target expression as well as target accessibility of all lesions, defining patient populations that most likely benefit from radioligand therapy with their therapeutic counterparts. Molecular imaging-based theranostics exclude patients from being exposed to a priori futile therapy. In a world of limited resources and an ever-growing number of treatment options, it remains crucial to select the optimal treatment for each individual patient. The ability to efficiently exclude patients through the use of theranostics is important to ensure effective treatment, from both a patient perspective and a health care perspective, but also emphasises the need for additional parameters and the development of more sophisticated algorithms to allow for optimal patient selection, rather than using a one-size-fits-all concept.

 

Learning Objectives:

The aim of this course will be to highlight how to set up a theranostic unit from the radioprotection point of view.
