Massimo Alfano, PhD discusses a novel platform for bladder tumor imaging.

Join Dr. Massimo Alfano from San Raffaele University for the fourth episode of the Vevo 4 Oncology Web Series. There is a need within health programs for diagnostic imaging and eradication of small, chemo-resistant neoplastic lesions. In this webinar, Dr. Alfano discusses a novel technological platform for early detection of neoplastic modifications and early treatment of solid cancers, including bladder neoplasia. Those from any education or experience level are welcome to join to learn more about contrast-enhanced bladder tumor imaging.

Key Topics Include:

  • Health programs crave for diagnostic imaging and eradication of chemo resistant neoplastic lesions smaller than 1 mm of size.
  • Novel technological platform for the early detection of neoplastic modifications and early treatment of solid cancers. Proof of concept in preclinical models of bladder cancer.
  • Advanced transformative technology, integrating the use of targeted gold nano-rods, high-resolution sonography and photoacoustic imaging in a unique and novel platform for the 3D visualization of bladder neoplasia < 0.5 mm.
