Thinking Outside the Box With Translational Medicine: A “Systematic” Approach to the Use of Image-Guided Therapies and other Advanced Diagnostics and Treatments in Veterinary and Human Patients  

Over the course of 3 days at MATS 2018 in Maui, advanced diagnostics and therapies for the treatment of diseases in different body systems (hepatobiliary/gastrointestinal, upper urinary tract, lower urinary tract, respiratory) will be discussed, debated and compared across species, including a focus on how many of these diseases are approached in human patients and what can be applied to veterinary cases. Unique to this particular program will be a major focus on image-guided therapies, in particular the use of Interventional Radiology/Endoscopy (IR/IE) techniques in the treatment of these diseases, and extracorporeal therapies. The symposium will be presented by two leaders in veterinary IR/IE whose practice is focused almost entirely on these specialties as well as a human Interventional Radiologist expert presenting the state-of-the-art image-guided therapies in humans for similar disease processes.
