Parallel Sessions

For the first time 20 parallel sessions have been scheduled to provide you with a broader spectrum of topics and a session of interest at any time. Each parallel session (except the late-breaking sessions I+II) started with an overview talk of about 25 min. followed by five talks selected from the excellent abstract submissions.

The 20 Parallel Sessions:

  • PS 01 | Novel Probes for Multifaceted MRI
  • PS 02 | Nuclear Medicine - Technology & Methods
  • PS 03 | Imaging Tumour Metabolism and Cell Death
  • PS 04 | Brain Structure and Disease
  • PS 05 | MRI incl. Hyperpolarization - Technology & Methods
  • PS 06 | late-breaking I
  • PS 07 | New Concepts and Agents for Multimodality Imaging
  • PS 08 | Theranostics and image guided surgery in oncology
  • PS 09 | Infectious Diseases & Cellular Imaging in Inflammation
  • PS 10 | Molecular Cardiovascular Imaging
  • PS 11 | Visualization of Tumour and the Microenvironment
  • PS 12 | Optical imaging, Mass Spectrometry, Microscopy - Technology & Methods
  • PS 13 | Brain Function
  • PS 14 | Inflammatory Responses
  • PS 15 | Applications of Novel Imaging Techniques
  • PS 16 | Novel Diagnostic Imaging Strategies in Oncology
  • PS 17 | Novel Nuclear and Optical Imaging Probes
  • PS 18 | Optoacoustics and Ultrasound - Technology & Methods
