Cutting-Edge German Medical Innovations Put Patients First
CHICAGO, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Germany is a world leader in medical technology and can claim – depending on topic – between 5 and 20 percent of published research in the field. Germany's Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is bringing the show on the road, presenting the latest research from about three dozen German innovators at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 98th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting Nov. 25-30 in Chicago. Via its campaign "Germany – Partner for Medical Technology", the BMBF will feature new developments in imaging at Joint Booth No. 1218 A-F, Lakeside Center, Hall D.
Germany has been a hotbed for science and technological excellence in the field of medical imaging since Wilhelm-Conrad Rontgen discovered what he called X-rays in 1895. Now, BMBF fosters cutting-edge medical technology development through the support of research conducted at interdisciplinary clusters, including 3-D Imaging in Medicine, Quantitative Imaging in Oncology (QUINO) and German Medical Imaging in Motion (GMIM), which bring together international experts in medicine, natural and engineering sciences and information technology to drive medical imaging innovation.
This year, about 35 researchers – from established leaders to up-and-comers – will present developments in diagnostic imaging and radio-oncology in collaboration with BMBF, including:
