The image-guided therapeutics symposium is a great opportunity to learn about current research and latest advances within the field of biomedical and diagnostic imaging, artificial intelligence, and image-guided therapeutics.

The scientific conference brings together scholars from the clinical and research communities who are interested in emerging diagnostic and therapeutic health technologies. Canadian researchers and scientists are encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts and poster presentations. Prizes are awarded for top contributors to the field of image-guided therapeutics and diagnostics. With its high-quality talks, the symposium provides an exceptional value for students, academics, and industry researchers. The day is an excellent opportunity to network and identify opportunities for collaboration and partnership. It also serves as a showcase for new innovations and breakthrough technologies for industry partners.
