Preview: EPIC Meeting on Photonics for Cancer Diagnostics and Treatment

The EPIC Meeting on Photonics for Cancer Diagnostics and Treatment at NKI will facilitate closure of the existing gap between unmet medical needs and innovative industrial solutions.

During the meeting, clinicians will make a comprehensive overview of the clinical demands for the technological innovations for cancer diagnostics and treatment with the special emphasis on breast and prostate cancer. In turn, the companies will share their latest developments that are aiming to improve existing procedures as well as new solutions for the existing issues.

The developments focusing on the minimal invasive diagnostic tools, intraoperative tumour margin assessment and post operative tissue analysis techniques. Methods such as hyperspectral and diffuse reflectance imaging, Raman spectroscopy, OCT fluorescence imaging, etc., will be discussed alongside with novel developments in the fields of the photodynamic therapy and other light-induced diagnostic and treatment solutions.

Key topics:
• Unmet medical needs
• Intraoperative guidance
• Diagnostics, treatments and analysis
• Out-of-the-box solutions
• Clinical translation

The Meeting will be held at Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital, The Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) located Plesmanlaan 121, 1066 CX, Amsterdam.
