Parallel Sessions

For the first time 20 parallel sessions have been scheduled to provide you with a broader spectrum of topics and a session of interest at any time. Each parallel session (except the late-breaking sessions I+II) started with an overview talk of about 25 min. followed by five talks selected from the excellent abstract submissions. 

The 20 Parallel Sessions:

  • PS 01 | Novel Probes for Multifaceted MRI 
  • PS 02 | Nuclear Medicine – Technology & Methods 
  • PS 03 | Imaging Tumour Metabolism and Cell Death 
  • PS 04 | Brain Structure and Disease
  • PS 05 | MRI incl. Hyperpolarization – Technology & Methods 
  • PS 06 | late-breaking I 
  • PS 07 | New Concepts and Agents for Multimodality Imaging 
  • PS 08 | Theranostics and image guided surgery in oncology 
  • PS 09 | Infectious Diseases & Cellular Imaging in Inflammation 
  • PS 10 | Molecular Cardiovascular Imaging 
  • PS 11 | Visualization of Tumour and the Microenvironment 
  • PS 12 | Optical imaging, Mass Spectrometry, Microscopy – Technology & Methods 
  • PS 13 | Brain Function 
  • PS 14 | Inflammatory Responses 
  • PS 15 | Applications of Novel Imaging Techniques 
  • PS 16 | Novel Diagnostic Imaging Strategies in Oncology 
  • PS 17 | Novel Nuclear and Optical Imaging Probes

ESMI Award 2015

The ESMI Award 2015 was presented in the scope of the Opening Ceremony in Tubingen. The winner 2015 is Adriaan Lammertsma – congratulations! All ESMI members had been invited to nominate their favourite candidates – thanks to all of you who actively participated.


The Young Investigator Award 2015 was presented to:

Benoit Busser from Villeurbanne for his work on “Elemental imaging by Laser spectrometry: new perspectives for medical applications”

This year a record of altogether 364 abstracts thereof 125 Young Investigator Award applications were submitted. Thereof 50 were shortlisted and their talks evaluated within the respective Parallel Sessions. The evaluation criterias were: the pre-score given by the reviewers, the scientific quality of the talk, innovation of work, quality of presentation, and the ability to answer requests. Within the Closing Ceremony the three best evaluated Young Investigator Award applicants presented their talks.

The further YIA finalists:

  • Larissa Rizzo from Aachen on “Imaging and targeted therapy of breast cancer metastasis using docetaxel-entrapped micelle”
  • Sam Massa from Brussels on “Sortase-mediated site-specific labeling of Nanobodies for use in molecular imaging”
EMIM 2015 Poster Awards

The poster walks were scheduled with no other competing sessions. Each of the poster walks was chaired by two chair persons – 1 senior and 1 junior – and resulted into an EMIM 2015 poster award. The Poster Awards 2015 were presented to the following presenters:
