Mediso, sponsor of WMIC 2016 exhibits at booth #525. Mediso is the World’s most prominent manufacturer and supplier of multimodality hybrid imaging devices. Behind the success is constant technological innovation, which makes the Mediso nanoScan® Family the first-line choice for preclinical imaging. The wide range of portfolio includes the world’s first integrated PET/MRI preclinical equipment. It has since been installed at more than 20 sites in four continents over the past four years and now available with a range of high performance magnets with field strength of 1T, 3T and 7T. Configurations of both SPECT/CT, PET/CT, and the newest member SPECT/MRI, can be tailored to meet any requirement, from advanced research institutes to start-up laboratories, while maintaining the highest image quality standards on the market.

Scientific program starts on Wednesday, September 13 and ends on Saturday, September 16 (WMIC 2017 Program; external link). WMIC Workshop on Imaging of Infection and Inflammation (external link) is a one-day workshop on Imaging of Infection and Inflammation supported by Mediso USA. The goal of this workshop is to bring together individuals from multiple scientific disciplines to leverage our resources, promote collaborations, and clinical translation. As part of the workshop, we will also have a panel to discuss the challenges in funding research in this field.
