Hello, my name is Thomas Beyer. I'm a teaching professor at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany and I'm also director of a Swiss company, CMI-Experts based in Zurich, Switzerland. I'd like to present to you a few thoughts on Dual Modality Imaging with Combined Scanners.

The table of content is shown here. We will first look at some general aspects of imaging and diagnosis. I will discuss with you initial thoughts on combining imaging and imaging modalities and developments triggered primarily by software fusion. We will look jointly at some early developments of dual-modality imaging systems. We will discuss briefly the clinical adoption of dual-modality imaging and imaging systems, moving into the commercialization of those systems. We will look at the clinical impact that combined imaging modalities had and have and continue to have. We will discuss some of the latest advances in imaging technologies, and finally, we will look at some pre-clinical applications of dual-modality scanners.

Imaging is an integral part of patient health care as well as research and the term diagnosis, which is closely related to imaging, stems from the Greek expression diagothes, which means to learn from the things that are split or set apart. Imaging diagnosis relates to diagnostic procedures and as you know, there's a plethora of diagnostic procedures encompassing anamnesis, physical exams, lab and cell diagnostics, and imaging. Now, in terms of imaging, we distinguish between structural imaging that helps to detect and measure changes in the anatomy and morphology of a patient versus functional imaging, that is the ability to detect or measure changes in metabolism, blood-flow, or any physiological parameters that we seek to measure.
