TexRAD attends RSNA 2016

TexRAD is attending the 102nd scientific assembly and annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America on the 27th November to 2nd December 2016 at the McCormick Place in Chicago, USA. 

This year at the RSNA there will be around 19 presentations (5 of which have won student awards) from our customer sites spread across USA, Canada, UK, EU and China focused predominantly on CT texture analysis (CTTA) and few on MR texture analysis (MRTA). These talks, posters and teaching sessions will cover different research applications in the area of oncology and also new applications in cardiology. A brief list of the individual presentations is provided as below.

TexRAD attends ECR 2015

TexRAD related talks and presentations were very well received at the recently concluded European Congress of Radiology (ECR) – scientific assembly and annual meeting of the European Society of Radiology from the 4th March to 8th March 2015 at the Austria Center in Vienna, Austria. It was quite evident at the conference that texture analysis is growing in importance as tool for the assessment of heterogeneity within tumours and other non-tumour applications (fibrosis, neurological/psychiatric disorders, cardiology) and as a risk-stratification tool having diverse applications (prognosis, disease-severity/characterization of lesions, treatment response prediction and evaluation), and is potentially leading to be an important non-invasive clinical imaging tool for tomorrow.
Presentations on TexRAD covered quite a diverse range of areas to validate this as a novel imaging biomarker (detailed in the table below).
The talk on Wed 4 March demonstrated the biological-correlate for multiparametric PET-CT image quantification (which includes TexRAD CT-texture-analysis) in terms of immuno-histochemical analysis (hypoxia, angiogenesis, ALK expression) in lung cancer.
The talk on Fri 6 March demonstrated the treatment response-prediction and evaluation ability of TexRAD MR-T2 texture analysis in assessing neo-adjuvant chemo-radiotherapy better than MR perfusion and diffusion in rectal cancer.
The talk on Sunday 8 March demonstrated the prognostic-ability of pre-operative TexRAD CT texture analysis of liver metastases in patients with colorectal liver metastases post liver resection. This paper was further recommended by the ECR 2015 Congress President (Prof. Bernd Hamm) and published as a full-page article in ‘ECR today’ on Sunday March 8 bulletin (in the clinical corner section). The paper was also voted as the best paper in the scientific session (Liver CT and ultrasound: New Technique – Abdominal Viscera, Imaging methods) where it was presented amongst the other science presentations.
The E-poster demonstrated a novel robust radiomics-approach using breast cancer patient population as an example, where multiparametric PET-CT features showed strong associations with immuno-histochemistry and identified high-risk patients (having – high mortality-risk, high tumour grade, high expression of proliferation marker – mcm2, high proportion of estrogen receptor negative status).

TexRAD to Attend RSNA 2014

TexRAD is attending the 100th scientific assembly and annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America on the 30th November to 5th December 2014 themed ‘A century of transforming medicine’ at the McCormick Place in Chicago, USA. 

Dr. Balaji Ganeshan will be presenting a number of TexRAD related papers particularly in colorectal cancer prognosis and response evaluation at RSNA. The details of papers and presentations related to TexRAD to be presented at RSNA this year are given below.

We hope to meet you at the RSNA meeting. Please email us (info@texrad.co.uk / balaji@texrad.co.uk) to specify some convenient dates and times and we will ensure that Dr. Balaji Ganeshan (Scientific-Director, TexRAD Ltd) and/or Mike Hayball (Managing-Director CCI Ltd) are able to give you their full attention. We can give a TexRAD scientific presentation and software demonstration (which includes Texture-processor and a novel Data-Mining tool to undertake the statistical analyses and identify interesting parameters leading to research publications!). In addition, we will discuss how TexRAD can assist you to enhance your research output in your specific areas of interest similar to the number of other prestigious research and clinical institutions around the world.

In addition, we will be attending Her Majesty’s Consul General’s reception at 6pm on Monday December 1st.

We look forward to hearing from you and meeting with you at RSNA!
