Guerbet to Participate in French Interventional Radiology Conference

October 10, 2017 — Guerbet announced it will be taking part in the 65th edition of the Journées Francophones de Radiologie (JFR) that will be held in Paris, France, Oct. 13-16, 2017.

The JFR, a major international gathering for medical imaging players, annually brings together more than 17,000 diagnostic and interventional radiology experts from France and abroad. This year, the JFR, a place for discussion and debate focusing on innovation, research and development, will place emphasis on the theme "Patients and their Radiologists."

Guerbet will present its integrated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and scanner offers as well as its digital solutions. For the sixth consecutive year, Guerbet will also be an exhibitor and partner of the "Interventional Radiology Village" where, for the first time, it will present Vectorio, its conventional trans-arterial chemo-embolization (cTACE) mixing and injection device that obtained the CE mark in September 2017. Vectorio encompasses a set of medical devices that are resistant to Lipiodol Ultra Fluide, used for cTACE

Guerbet will also organize two symposiums during the JFR:

  • "Gadolinium deposits in the brain: what is the current situation?" Friday, Oct. 13 — Prof. Fabrice Bonneville (Toulouse University Hospital) will be the moderator and findings will be presented by Prof. Douraied Ben Salem (Brest University Hospital), Dr. Nicolas Menjot De Champfleur (Montpellier University Hospital), Prof. François Cotton (Lyon Public Hospital) and Prof. Isabelle Thomassin (Tenon Public Hospital, Paris).
