Infection & Immunity - Center image sciences

Imaging is commonly used in the diagnosis of many infectious and inflammatory diseases. The diagnostic evidence, accuracy, added value, cost-effectiveness is however often unknown. Current tests often lack specificity and with the rise of molecular imaging, many innovation into specific detection of infectious (e.g. aspergillus-PET) and inflammatory (e.g. B-cel PET) diseases are anticipated. As these disorders have poorly understood systemic effects (whole-body) imaging can provide crucial insight of subclinical deterioration of organ structure and function in these conditions.
