    Roderic I. Pettigrew, PhD, MD, will share the need for healthy longevity as the overarching goal of the healthcare enterprise, one that is even being pursued by the National Academy of Medicine. The vision shared in his lecture entitled, “Tomorrow’s Radiology,” is straightforward: to be born healthy, acquire no significant disease, live a long and satisfying life, and to reach the end of life without pain or suffering from disease. Dr. Pettigrew will discuss the role of biomedical imaging in reaching that goal. Learn more about Dr. Pettigrew >>

    Elias A. Zerhouni, MD, will discuss the role imaging plays in biomedicine and in realizing the core goal of personalized medicine: intervening before deterioration of function by predicting which patients will most likely benefit from novel therapeutics. His lecture is entitled, “Imaging Innovation in 21st Century Biomedicine – Challenges and Opportunities.” Learn more about Dr. Zerhouni >>
