Affidea CEO Attends IS3R Symposium

IS3R is a closed society of 61 Radiology and Nuclear Medicine leaders from the most important academic institutions globally, as well as industry members at CEO/ Senior Executive level.

The 2015 symposium examined the role of IT in healthcare, the changes in industry-academy relationships, the role of new drugs in imaging and new therapies (theranostics), as well as the trends in hybrid imaging.

Representing Affidea, Mr Moulavasilis participated in the panel Next Generation Informatics and Clinical Support. His subject was Digital Connectivity and Big Data for Standardised High Quality Outcomes and Efficient Care Delivery.

“Once again, Affidea was a presence on a prestigious international industry platform where our unique Big Data Management techniques generated a great deal of interest and discussion amongst the panel,” announced Mr Moulavasilis.
