The ministry will be on hand to highlight some of Germany's radiological advancements:
- A new 3D, low-dose CT scanner that promises to improve breast cancer diagnosis, especially for women with dense breasts
- Time-of-flight PET/CT systems that aid radiation therapy and general surgical planning
- Software called Mint Lesion, from image processing firm Mint Medical, that assesses early patient responses to cancer therapy
- A tabletop MRI scanner that trains physician to perform functional brain imaging and other advanced applications
The ministry's campaign, focused on medical technology, encourages teamwork across disciplines and industries to drive imaging innovation. The campaign also supports education and training in Germany and encourages collaboration with institutions worldwide.
