Primary Conference Topics

 • Diagnostic imaging and detection with applications in cancer diagnostics, cardiovascular imaging, infectious diseases (endoscopies, diffused imaging, spectroscopy)
 • New techniques in microscopy and other emerging techniques (superresolution techniques, contrasts for microscopy, in vivo imaging)
 • Analytical systems (microarrays, high-throughput detection)
 • MD perspectives (unmet clinical needs)
 • Industry perspectives (the implementation process, device success stories)
