      Paper published in Expert review of Gastroenterology and Hepatology

      In this manuscript, we review various endoscopic imaging techniques including fluorescent molecular endoscopy and label-free modalities for inflammation assessment and dysplasia detection in IBD. Future prospects for molecular imaging to overcome the remaining clinical challenges in IBD are described, such as pretreatment patient stratification for optimal therapy, monitoring treatment response, assessing mucosal drug distribution, andRead more →

      Paper published in Journal of Nuclear Medicine

      We are delighted that our safety and imaging feasibility study investigating the fluorescent imaging agent bevacizumab-800CW in soft tissue sarcomas has been published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine. Based on in- and ex vivo imaging results, 10 mg bevacizumab-800CW is optimal for sarcoma detection and for margin analysis to identify the closest surgical mariginRead more →
