German Vendors Highlight Latest Radiological Advances at RSNA

The German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) will be at RSNA ’12 to show off the country’s hottest radiological advances in science and research, including:

·         Density no issue for high-resolution, low-dose breast CT technology:Prof. Willi A. Kalender will present research on a new CT system that promises a significantly more accurate diagnosis of breast cancer for women with dense breasts, among others,  through high contrast, three-dimensional images and with no greater radiation exposure than standard screening mammograms.

·         Time-of-Flight 3D imaging works for video games – and medical imaging: Prof. Joachim Hornegger and Kurt Höller, Ph.D., will demonstrate how Time-of-Flight cameras are being used in radiation therapy and surgery, providing continuous, real-time noninvasive 3D images during patient treatment.

·         Imaging software allows tumor tracking over timeMatthias Baumhauer, Ph.D., will present mint Lesion, new software that assesses the effectiveness of a cancer treatment throughout the course of therapy allowing treatments to be adjusted quickly as needed. The software has application for individual patients as well as tracking patient cohorts during clinical trials.

·         MRI training via small, portable, low-cost technology: Prof. Axel Haase will present a new portable, low-cost MRI that is smaller than the size of two laptops and can be used to train physicians on techniques ranging from brain function analysis to cardiac function, rather than training through simulations.

These advances are possible through BMBF, whose campaign, “Germany – Partner for Medical Technology,” encourages teamwork across disciplines and industries on an international level to drive medical imaging innovation. The campaign also supports education and training in Germany and internationally and fosters partnerships with U.S. institutions including Johns Hopkins University.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
