Explore new opportunities for cost-effective imaging management - Maximising the Value of Imaging in Oncology Drug Development
SMi's 10th annual imaging conference, taking place on the 12-13 March in London, will provide comprehensive insights into the usage of imaging in clinical trials, giving delegates access to the latest information, legislation and case studies across the industry from innovators including Roche Diagnostics, Novartis and GSK, among others.
The roll of medical imaging is and will continue to be vital in that respect: Patients' stratification based on imaging biomarkers can help identify individuals suited for preventive intervention and can improve disease staging. Imaging is essential to patient-tailored therapy planning, therapy monitoring, quantification of response-to-treatment and follow-up disease progression. Especially with the rise of companion diagnostics/theranostics, imaging and treatment will have to be synchronized in real-time to achieve the best control/guidance of the treatment. In an age of personalised medicine, technique and practice need to be aligned. Creating and developing imaging strategies to drive both drug development and the delivery for correct treatment is key.

SMi's 10th annual imaging conference will provide attendees with a comprehensive insight into the industry and its future. We will be considering the current landscape of personalised imaging within the field of oncology, as research suggests healthcare that is inherently more 'personal' is the way forward. Informative imaging strategies for success will be a highlight for our event, as well as the exploration of current and future legislation and its impact on imaging. The use of imaging in clinical trials will also be examined and discussed together with developing new imaging agents.
Event highlights at SMi's 10th annual Imaging conference include:

Pharmacokinetics Pre-Conference Workshop - Led by Dr Marijn Vlaming, Research Scientist, TNO - 11th March 2014, London, UK
In this workshop various non- or minimally invasive methods to study pharmacokinetics in preclinical (in vitro and in vivo) and clinical settings will be presented. We will further describe methods to translate preclinical data to the situation in humans and options to obtain relevant data from humans early in the drug development process.
