The next Contrast Media Research (CMR) symposium will take place in Resort Schwielowsee, near the cities of Potsdam and Berlin in Germany, on November 7 through 10, 2015. CMR was initiated by Elliot Lasser, San Diego, in 1970 and has since taken place 18 times. It has been and continues to be a unique gathering where top-level researchers from academia and industry have an opportunity to exchange up-to-date thoughts and new data in a collegial and open forum.
The format of CMR balances lectures and scientific sessions, with discussion between the audience and speakers playing a major role. Program topics include but are not limited to:
• novel CM in general
• CM for X-ray, US, MR, OI
• celluar and molecular imaging
• tracers for magnetic particle imaging
• future imaging technology: New indications for CM?
• ferumoxytol - USPIO reloaded ?
• CM in image-guided interventions
• safety aspects of approved CM
• safety assesment of new CM
• regulatory aspects in CM development
